Q.My Dracaena Has Lost All Of Its Leaves.

Zone 91723 | Donaldleesingleton1 added on July 30, 2020 | Answered

I tried to follow the watering instructions but I’m afraid that I let it get too dry. It has lost all of its leaves and I wonder if I should cut back to get it to grow? It is in a 4″ pot that it came with from the store. The pot does not hold any water so I have to leave it in the sink until the water drains out leaving the soil moist.

You can check to see if it is still alive by scraping off some of the bark. If there is green below it is still alive, if not, it is toast. Let the soil dry out between waterings. Overwatering is most often the reason plants fail.

Follow these care instructions and see if it regrows leaves:
