Q.Cordyline Leaves Going Brown

Zone London | w1ll1am1 added on March 20, 2021 | Answered

Hi, I have moved into a property with what I think is a cordyline. I dug it up and put it in a pot about 8 months ago and now the leaves are turning brown. What causes this? Should I replant it in the ground? Thanks in advance! Will

Digging up and disturbing an established Cordyline will cause it quite a bit of stress. Unfortunately, anything that you do from here will only cause more stress.

Proper care in container, and replacing all top soil with potting soil and compost will be appropriate. Other than that, perfect care will give it the best chance of survival.
