Why Hawaiian Ti Plants Get Brown Leaves
I do not know which type of plant this is and how to care for it. I have been giving it a drink of about 8oz of water every other day and have noticed that the ends of the leaves are browning. Am I over watering, under, or is it related to the light that it gets, or does not get?
Your plant is called a Hawaiian Ti plant. Proper watering is the most difficult part of taking care of a this plant. The soil of a Ti plant must always be moist but never soggy and it should never totally dry out. Use bottled water for a Ti Plant if your regular water contains fluorine or chlorine or passes through a water softener since these chemicals damage the leaves and cause them to turn brown. I also think you are over-watering your Ti plant. Water well and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again.
