    Is that a genus of orchid? If so treat it like a Nepenthes. Oh you may have a fungi, disease or root rot.

    I have a dracaena that I rescued from the alley about 2 years ago. it was all burned and dried up looking and the pot overgrown with weeds, etc. Anyway, I keep it in the shade and keep the soil moist.

    It's a cane type of plant. They grow like a cane, with the leaves growing out of the top. Over time they get taller and taller. they are easy to propogate too. Just chop off the cane and you get a new plant. Chop the cane up into pieces and stick them in the soil and you got more new plants.

    I doubt it is the water. I water mine with tap water. And the tap water is so bad here that nobody drinks it. Too much direct sunlight will cause it, I have mine in the shade and it is real happy there. It would be a good houseplant.

    Could you propagate RedEdge the way yu described? I have one of those. Also a TriColor. I love them.

    If so, how long would it take for the "new cane" to grow a top?
