Brown leaves cloud the otherwise flawless and lush green face of the parrot flower. Seeing them makes them appear ill and suggest that something is wrong with the care. What are the real reasons behind this?

Old Strelitzia leaves turn brown

Normal signs of aging

A few brown leaves on the Strelitzia are often a normal sign of aging. The foliage of this evergreen tropical plant renews itself over the years. Sometimes in spring, sometimes in winter… Individual leaves turn brown and dry up.

Other reasons: wrong location and incorrect maintenance

But the following aspects can also lead to brown leaves on the Strelitzia:

  • draft
  • too wet soil (possibly root rot)
  • too dry soil
  • too warm hibernation
  • Fertilizer oversupply
  • too sudden strong, direct sunlight (sunburn)

tips

Do not cut off the brown leaves, but wait until the leaves have dried up and then tear them out with a jerk!
