I have a dracaena marginated donated to my office from my mum. It was healthy and had 4 heads of leaves when I first received it, and now it's a little sad looking. Firstly, the leaves are pointing downwards, the new growth is less vigorous than before and there was one main trunk that was kinda soft. It felt like there was some air space between the bark and the internal stem bit. Here's some photos of the poor thing: Full plant in its pot Dead/shrivelled/soft stalks I plan to repot in Spring (it's autumn in Australia right now) coz I think it's pretty pot-bound. It gets watered when the top 2-3 inches of soil is dry, which is about once a week. I had been neglecting the fertilizer, but I've rectified this now. It's facing north-west and looks like there's enough light. So is it sick? What else can I do? Also, it's looking really bare in the lower stem, can I get it to give me a new branch without cutting the top off completely? I read somewhere that if you cut a small slice in the stem, a new shoot will grow. If anyone's got any info on how to achieve this I would greatly appreciate it! Cheers!
