I have a lanceolata red spice in a container - it is a young plant, and the container is ample big enough at the moment. It is in full sun. Some of the leaves have gone brown at the edges - seems to be burned, but the care says full sun. Any ideas what could have caused it? I have a feeling it could have been overwatering, although the soil is well drained. Any help would be appreciated.

Can't grow that plant where I live, but in most plant culture, leaves that burn at the edge are showing stress and a lack of water. A lot of containers need to be soaked in a bucket of water, so the soil gets thoroughly wet, compost once dry, does not get wet easily, so even if you are watering, the water might be running off the sides. When plants get too much water, the leaves turn yellow and fall especially the new growth. Hope that helps.
