A sad Cordyline.
stroud glos, United Kingdom
We inherited it about 3 1/2 years ago when we moved here and I removed it from it's pot and placed it in the ground for a year, for which it did very well. I took it from it's site and tranplanted it to the new wanted home, about 6 months ago. I was told to tie the leaves upright as they had sagged as the plant had of course gone into shock. I recently untied them to reveal the same expected sag. A few of the upright ones are beginning to drop down now. I have been giving the plant some warm boiled water and have recently some fish blood & bone to help stimulate growth. The leaves are now beginning to yellow.
What I need to know ( I do understand that it will be a 50/50 chance of survival anyway ) is will it help totally removing all leaf to encourage growth or should I just leave it alone and hope for the best ?
