mandevilla turning brown!

This summer I decided to splurge and buy myself a madevilla vine. It was growing beautifully. I always kept it inside and it is still in the same container. However, the growing tips are turning brown. I thought it was a fungus so I treated it with Funginex. (Hope I didn't hurt it!) It now has a new shoot and it is still turning brown, not drying up. Does anyone know what causes this? What should I do? I was thinking of repotting it. Do you think that would help? Marg

What to do depends on finding out what is happening. I wouldn't expect a fungus to turn only the tips brown. Don't apply anymore garden chemicals without more information (is Funginex labeled for indoor use?). Try clipping some affected parts, putting them in a clear plastic bag with a good seal and taking them to a local information source such as a greenhouse company or garden center with a large house plant section, seeing if someone there can shed some light.

Down here we have USDA Cooperative Extension Service offices where such problems can be asked about, if you have anything like this there it would be a good place to try.
