Can anybody help me with my dieffenbachia crocodile, I’ve got two new leaves and they are both dry?! And the tips of the plant is turning yellow/ brown.
(the plant has been in the same place for 8 months, it’s has morning sun. These pictures were taken at 7am. I water it with tap water when the soil is dry and that I’ve done the whole time and i give it nutrient once every two weeks now when it’s spring/ summer.)

The tip burn is caused from the fertilizer you are giving every 2 weeks. Plus, using tap water over an extended amount of time will build up minerals in the soil, and lock out a few micro nutrients. The best way to fix the problem is to use filter or bottled water each time you water and don't fertilize with that dose. Try using 1/2 the amount of fertilizer you use, only once every 6 weeks very lightly. Good luck
