dracaena Moved outside is now drooping

Moved this outside along with my ficus benjamina. Ficus is loving it; however, the dracaena marginata is now drooping. It’s not over or under watered, and neither get full direct sun. They just get the ambient light from the sky. Why is it drooping like this? And should I move it back in?
