The leaf tip has started to brown but it's dry. Can I do anything to stop the browning or is this natural after blooming? It's doing it on two bulbs
You can take a new razor blade or clean scissors and cut it off below the brown inside the living green and reshape the leaf end. This happens when salts build up in the pot from fertilizer. Be sure to flush your medium with pure water. If it continues, consider replacing the medium with fresh medium.
