maybe you are over watering?
They can cope with fairly shady positions, as long as it's not completely deep shade 100% all the time, I think.
Maybe you can change the soil to burnt earth to minimise dampness, and treat it close to a cactus when watering.

I agree with HortVet.

This kind of Dracaena protests by yellowing leaves when it has wet feet.

It is good to unpot it to take a look at the roots, probably you will find a rotten mass of roots.

Beware of overwatering!

This is different from yellow leaf tips that occur to all Dracaenas, this appears to be due to low humidity.

Sorry to 'hijack' your thread :)/>

I have several experiences of overwatering it. The leaves start yellowing then the entire leaf stalk breaks off. When i attempt to cut off the stub, water actually oozes out...

What should be the watering schedule be? How what would the signs be that the plant is screaming for water? I try to water them once fortnightly (indoor). Is that too frequent. I am trying to limit to 3 weeks once.
