the majesty palm (Ravenea rivularis) will take full sun so for inside
it will need a very well lit psotion, the browning tips sounds like
lack of moisture, the best way to water is to immerse the pot into
water and soak approximately once a week through summer, or water from
the top when the potting mix dries to the depth of the first knuckle of
the corn plant (dracaena fragrans) will also need a good light
situation and the same watering sequence.
