I think this plant is named Dracco (hope I am in the right thread :P/> ).

Anyway, I bought this plant two weeks ago (placed indoor) and now some of the leaves have turned yellowish, any advice? :blush:/> Could it be a change of environment?

That is neither Dracaena draco or Beaucarnea. But for sure it is Dracaena. Too much yellowing leaves may be sign of root rot.

Dun think it is Beaucarnea as well.. as seldom seen a multi branches potted one. Believe that it is a Draceana Cambodiana... 'Hainan Draco'. The Chinese name for Draco is 'Dragon Blood Tree'.. while Cambodiana is 'Hainan Dragon Blood Tree'. A few of such among a group of such plants on Hainan Island is believed to be around 6000 years old.
I have all 3.. Beaucarnea, Draco and Cambodiana. All are rather tolerant and easy trees. If the yellow leaves are the lower ones.. it is quite ok cos these trees shed their lower leaves as they grow taller. In fact, I like to peel off the lower dry leaves on my Draco and Cambodiana. As I do so, there will be red stains on the trunk... no wonder they are known as 'Dragon Blood'. These 'blood' are medicines for some.

By the way.. how much do u get it for?
I believe your plant need to be place in a brightly lit area if left indoor... Insufficient light might also led to yellowing of leaves and damage the plant.

Seems like the plant is doing okay in my living room... the leaves turn yellow then brown, but mostly at the lower part of the branch... as you said, they are growing... :D/>

Can't remember the exact price... think about $400+++ ^_^/>

Remember not to over water the plant. Allow the soil to dry out before drenching it. If possible, leave the plant outside overnight once or twice a month.

The stem of the plant turned soft and some branches are so soft that the leaves "mati" liao... why and how do I save the tree?

I have moved the plant to a more sunny area, but still don't understand as it has been growing well for the past year... :(/>
