Why is my dracaena leaves turning yellow and brown?
Lack of humidity is one of the most common reasons for problems with dracaena. Leaf tips turning brown accompanied by leaf loss and yellowing leaf margins are indicative of low humidity. Placing your plant on top of a dish filled with small stones and water will improve plant humidity.
How do you know if your Dracena is overwatered?
The most obvious signs of overwatering are soft brown leaves or a soft looking trunk. If you notice this happening, leave your dracaena to dry out fully and then reduce watering going forward.
Can a yellow stem turn green again?
When the leaf loses its chlorophyll, the plant abandons it and begins to absorb leftover nutrients from the leaf. That’s why once the leaf turns yellow, you generally can’t make it turn back green again. (Although in cases of nutrient deficiencies, sometimes yellow leaf color can green back up again with treatment.)
