Please help with my Dracaena Massangeana

La Mirada, United States

Hi everyone,
Please help me with this plant. I have it for around 3 years and it keep getting brownish on the leaves and some are completely dry.
I water it a bottle of drinking water once a week.
Do you anyone have any idea what are happening with my plant?
Thank you all!

Dracaenas are sensitive to mineral salts. Fertilizer and water naturally high in salts will brown out leaves starting at the leaf tips. Much of California has water high in salts. Greenhouse growers use reverse osmosis purification to overcome the problem.

Repot the plant in a loose potting mix and, if you can collect rain water, water with that. Scrub out pot and drain tray. In future, flush the pot several times a year to reduce salt accumulation.
