Hi, I bought a Dracena Marginata from a nursery a few months back, I was told it was very healthy tree but a few days after bringing it home I noticed one of the stems was hollow and crunchy. I immediately pulled it from the pot assuming it had rotted through and checked the rest of them, I only needed to pull one other and the tree flourished from then on. Until recently. I have six stems and the leaves have fallen off four of them and are looking a little depressed on the other two. The tree itself looks and feels really healthy and is still pretty green toward the usually leafy part but I can't figure out why it's malting.
The room it sits is a little dreary but it sits next to a window that get's maximum sunlight throughout the day and I water it often making sure to empty the water catcher and only water it when the soil at the surface is dry to touch.. I use tap water though and the plant sits in a room with an air-conditioner, on warm regularly recently.
Anyone with tips or an explanation I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
