I've had this plant for a while and lately it's been getting really brown and crispy tips. The problem is that I don't know what species it is so I can't search for what it needs.
Does anybody know?

This plant is an Aspidastra elatior, a native of Taiwan, which has been in cultivation as an indoor plant for hundreds of years. Common names include the cast iron plant which describes how tough it is. It can be grown outdoors in tropical climates where it might produce a maroon flower.
You can grow this plant in very low light, low humidity and not much care but it does better if given more daylight from almost any exposure. If a hot southern window is chosen then a regular inspection for spider mites on the underside of the leaves is advised. This is only pest I have ever seen on this plant.
More light and top up the pot with some fresh potting soil is about all this plant needs.
That looks like a peace lily, but the leaves are different. They're also common house plants.
