Softened Water

If you have houseplants with leaves turning brown on the tips, find out how to fix the problem! Generally, the reason is that your plants aren't getting enough water, but it could also be a lack of humidity that is causing this problem. Additionally, it could be that there is excess salt from too much fertilizer or softened water. If the latter is the case, use distilled water instead to keep the leaves nice and green.
