Hi, everyone! I'm really hoping someone can help me here, I bought a Dracaena Fragrans (corn plant) two days ago from Walmart (so it's not like the poor thing gwas getting the best care.) It had a few browned tips here and there, nothing major, the soil was damp but not waterlogged (though I am assuming it was getting overwatered.) There are two canes, one is about 2 feet and one is slightly under 3 feet. The leaves were/are what I think looks like a healthy dark green. I brought it home to my apartment (which is generally about 20-25 Â°C and fairly humid) I looked up everything I could find about how to keep my new plant healthy, and read that it likes direct sun, so I placed it in my living room window, I'm not sure which compass direction it faces, but it gets bright afternoon sunshine in the heat of the day. After the first day it seemed to be losing the little bit of droop that it had and was perking up some. By this evening it very quickly started getting worse and worse. There were a few minor brown tips when I brought it home, but I clipped them (leaving about 1/8 of an inch) and in a few hours since id last examined it I noticed many new brown tips, the leaves are curling under at the tips pretty drastically (i think) the ends of the leaves the last few inches, feel pretty dry to me, though th e colour till a very nice looking green. . There are some brown holeswhat look like sluces dEveloping along the middle of the leaves, which spread very rapidly and in some places have even separated thr leaves into two strips, The canes feel firm to me, though as I have no experience I cannot be sure. I have not watered the plant as it came to me with damp soil and I read dracaena likes to fully dry out between waterings. I have left it in it's original container, as I was waiting for it to acclimate to its new environment for awhile before repotting. The pot it is currently in has drainage holes on the sides nearly against the bottom edge and the soil seems very loose, so I thought it had adequate drainage for the time being. I am not sure ifthis is a problem bfrom former overwatering at the store, or if it is scorched from too much sun. This is my first plant and I read they were hard to kill, I've only had "him" for two days but I have named him Bob and become very attached to him already. I really hope that someone can give me some help to save my new roommate. I have taken pictures to show you but I don't seem to be able to get them to upload, I will keep trying and update with pictures when I find a way to make it work. I saw a post where someone suggested to someone with a roughly similar problem draining the soil. I feel pretty stupid right now but I have no idea what that means exactly, like I said, the soil in mine is not waterlogged at all, is thus relevant only if the soil is waterlogged and can be poured out? Or should I attempt to add some drainage holes in the very bottom of the pot? Maybe move it more out of the light? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated, I've given as much information as I can think of that might be helpful, but if thered any information I can give you that will help please let me know. Oh! There is also a white powdery substance he tr e and there on the surface on some of the leaves, kind of hard to see, not much of it, I wiped the leaves yesterday with a damp cloth gently, and it seems to be back already in some places, I have photos of this as well. I will try to get these uploaded as soon as possible. Thank you in advance, as you can probably tell I'm freaking out for my poor plant, and feeling pretty much like the worst plant caretaker in the world, anf I was trying so hard to not do anything wrong. I really hope this is not something I did to him.
