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
you finger.

the corn plant (dracaena fragrans) will also need a good light
situation and the same watering sequence.


happy gardening
