Hi Ruth,

You may need to change the potting mix if you have not already done so in the last few years. The brown tips on the ends of the leaves can be due to either under or over watering. As we come into the cooler months check the soil moisture levels prior to watering to ensure the plant is not over watered. Sometimes if the plant has been well fertilised a burn will appear on the leaves. To promote flowering use a fertiliser high in potassium such as Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Plant Food.
