Q.

I Have Dracaena Whose Leaves Are Turning Brown and Dry Up

This plant was a gift and I don't know too much about them. It seems to need more soil. Could that be a problem? How far up on the plant should the soil be?

Most container plants need soil up to about an inch or so from the rim of the pot. If it's brown and dry, it may be underwatered. Stick your finger in the soil about an inch down )or up to your first knuckle) and see if it feels moist at all. If it's dry, then give the plant some water.
