A variety of fungal diseases fall under the anthracnose classification, and they cause browning of leaf tips, browning or spotting of entire leaves and leaf drop. If you've crossed off other environmental issues and suspect anthracnose, all you can do is remove affected leaves, and throw them away. To prevent the disease, give your plants the amount of water and fertilizer they need to stay healthy and use a fungicide as a preventative measure if the disease occurs on a regular basis or if your area experiences a run of high humidity.
Sterilize your pruners or garden scissors after each use with rubbing alcohol to avoid spreading disease from plant to plant.
