    I have a Dracaena that wasn’t doing too well indoors after winter had passed. I had one separate stalk that was still alive but very droopy and three other stalks in another pot and two of them died, or so I thought. I took them outside to water and noticed they looked happier outdoors and figured I’d keep them there. I thought maybe they'd have a chance outside. One of the ‘dead’ stalks completely dried out but one is newly sprouting from three nodes. Is it ok to keep them all or is that too energy consuming for it?

    I'd leave it up to the plant to decide how it wants to develop new growth. Besides a stalk with multiple branch stems is aesthetically more pleasing.

    You're welcome. I should have mentioned this before but consider removing a bud if it is so close to another that their growth would result in crowding. You are good to go if they are well spaced apart.

    You mean you'd keep them there for the summer, right? It's not going to survive your winter outside.
