PLANT NERD TIPS: If you notice light or bleached flowers, it's a sign of sun damage.  move your plant to a place with less direct light. However if the flower stems look leggy or reaching then it needs more direct light. 

Browning is a sign of overwatering.  When watering water at the soil and avoid the leaves to prevent the growth or spread of powdery mildew.
