Just bought this Dracaena couple weeks ago. It has been starting to get these spots on the sides of the leaves. Any idea what it might be?
Is the sun hitting it directly there? Also keep an eye out for spider mites!
sun is not direct :(
If you notice brown tips and spots on your dracaena, the problem is probably due to inconsistent watering. If the soil dries out too much, the tips of the leaves will present with brown tips and spots. See attached picture for reference.
this might be it… I just checked the soil and it was fully dry… guess it will take some time to learn a watering schedule for the new plant
The Greg app will help with a watering schedule. 🪴
Could be temperature. Mine developed black spots from being too close to the AC
Use Greg app to remind u to check the soil. If still damp then chk again tomoro. On water days I tend to splash the leaves to rid of dust but then wipe it dry so that no chance for fungal or unwanted growth.
