The leaves on my schefflera are turning brown on the edges. What's wrong and what can I do to treat the problem? I've attached a photo. Thank you Cathy

Too much water and/or fertilizer often produce the symptoms shown in the photo. Be sure the pot drains well and no water remains in a tray or container that holds runoff.
