Help Diagnosing Dracaena Carmen Problem

bradyb23April 3, 2014

Hello. I believe I have a Dracaena Carmen (although I once saw it referred to as a Dracaena Art Carmen) that is showing signs of distress (see photo; the "healthy" leaf are firm, dark green with a yellow stripe along each edge). Any idea what I'm doing wrong and how to remedy? I don't know if it matters, but I recently moved from an almost 100% fluorescent office light interior office to an office with a south facing window that lets in plenty of indirect sunlight and a few hours of direct sunlight. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

looks like it might be sun scorched, could be getting too much direct light, could also be too much fertilizer.

good luck!
