Dracaena Plant yellowing

Just bought 2 weeks ago a beautiful 2 1/2 foot Dracaena plant and repotted it. Watered it thoroughly. Many of the leaves, including the new growth, are yellowing over half a leaf and many, many of the tips are brown. What am I doing wrong?

Was there a reason you repotted the plant?
Did you increase the size of the pot from it’s original pot size?
What type of soil did you use to repot the plant?

I suspect the yellowing leaves may be from overwatering. Your plant may also be stressed from the move to a new pot before it was ready to be repotted. When moving up a to a new pot it’s best to only go up one size.
Allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering. Provide a good amount of filtered sunlight.

Here is a link to the proper care and requirements of a Dracaena plant.
