Moving a dracaena indoors
I have a large dracaena corn plant that I have had for years. I named him Lazarus, because he's returned from the dead several times (underwatering, heat-scorched leaves, top broken off with a basketball, total freeze to the roots, etc.). He usually lives indoors beautifully, with some outdoor time in the summer. However, since I moved to Virginia, he only thrives on the porch. When the temperature drops, I bring him in - but despite good indirect light and careful monitoring of water, each winter for the past 3 years he looses most leaves, yellows, and almost dies. It takes weeks on the porch to recover in spring. The humidity in winter is quite low, so it's not overwatering. Anyone have any ideas about what's going on?
