They are usually pretty tough but leaves will go brown like cardboard if the pot dries out. Brown leaf tips could be water stress, salinity or excess fertilizer.

It would be much easier to identify with a picture, but the likely culprit is too much sun.

All three species will grow happily in pots, fairly dark spaces and wet, reasonably fertile soil.

I'm growing the NSW variety and the smooth, and i've only ever gotten brown leaves from when they have been burnt. They recover quite quickly though, which is good.

If it is not burning causing the browning, IDK.

They may have come from conditions with higher humidity. You could give it slightly more shade and increase sun gradually. Often plants in potting mix will become much stronger when planted into a well conditioned planting site. I would think a small shadecloth structure would help it overcome the leafburn problem and could be taken off after summer or let the plant just grow through it.. You wont fix the burnt patches but the new leaves will adapt.

Yes - Sunburn - some filtered morning sun OK but afternoon shade is best.

If you have recently recieved the plants, they may have come from a shadehouse, and now placed at your place under different light and wind conditions. You can acclimatise by placing plants under heavy shade and gradually move out to more sun at a cooler, rainy, overcast etc time.
