Came across this ebook "How to Care for Your Dracaena" on http://www.dracaenacare.com/

The price is quite affordable at U$17. Has anyone read this ebook before?
Dont mind paying the money but I want to make sure it's not a internet con-job.

Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks.

Not sure about the ebook, but I also agree that dracaenas are really easy. :)/>

Seemed I'm the only one with the problem with my Dracaena dracco then :huh:/>

I bought this 3 stems (each between 1 - 1.5m tall) of Dracaena dracco from a nursery and they delivered in a big pot filled with coco peat mixed with sand.
I watered the pot with 1.5 litres of water once every week. And I push the pot to sun every day for about 6 hours.

It has been more than 1 year now. when I push the truck, the plant can still be moved. I thought it means the root did not root well.

Also, all 3 plants started with very very bushy appearance not has at least lost 60% of bottom leaves.
Leaves kept having this burnt out / dry out tip.
I bought this pot of plant to conceal my bike but with the leaves drying out at the base, it really looks like chicken-leg now.

Can anyone advise how to fix my problem and get the plant to grow well.

Will this plant grow well if I plant it on the ground?

What is the optimal condition for this plant?

Thanks.

Nicholas, you sure your plant is the true draco? (got a picture)? as diffrent species of draco has a vast different growing conditions.
