When the tips of the leaves go brown, and die off, it usually means there is an issue with water (an environmental issue). This can be caused by over/under/irregular watering, drought and/or heavy rain, poor soil drainage or water repellent soil. Soil quality can also play a role in water availability, always use organic fertilisers such as Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser.

To help avoid this, improve drainage where possible; Keep the soil moderately moist; and Check to see if the soil has become water repellent and apply a soil wetter such as Yates Waterwise Soil Wetter Concentrated.
