Brown tips on a spider plant

Brown tips on a spider plant
Q: I have one spider plant left and it is dying. The leaves turn brown beginning from the tips and the browning moves back until it is dead. I even check it with a water meter once a week to make sure it is getting enough water. What can I do?

A: Sadly, you have found out that your spider plant, Chlorphytum comosum, is generally easy to grow until the tips brown out.

This tip burn is usually caused by chemicals in the water. City water probably is chlorinated and treated with fluoride and either one can cause a burn.

I know this is well known but worth reprinting.
