NOTE: Dragon Trees are poisonous to pets. May cause some allergies in humans - Keep away from small children.
Sudden Leaf Drop or Droopy Leaves: Can be caused by overwatering. Asses your watering schedule and adjust accordingly, usually reducing it and letting the top layer of soil dry out in between watering. Also check potting mix and ensure that it is well draining.
Dry Leaf Tips & Edges: These are a result of under watering and low humidity. Aim to keep the soil lightly moist, and only allow the top layer to dry out in between watering.
Dry Round Patches & Streaks on leaves: This is caused by direct sun hitting the leaves. Move your Dragon Tree into a bright space with bright light but no sun hitting the leaves.
Pale Foliage: Your plant is not getting enough light. Move your plant to a brighter spot, where it gets more bright indirect light.
Yellowing Tips of Leaves: Discolouration is different to dry leaf tips. This symptom could be a result of too much fertilizer. Alternatively, it could be the result of using municipal tap water with flouride. Assess your fertilizer schedule and fertilize less or use a weaker solution. And definitely switch to natural source of water should you be using municipal water.
