RE: dracaena massangeana

If you are using tap water, the fluoride and chlorine in the water can cause brown tips. Over-feeding can also cause tips to brown.
You can use rain or bottled water if you have hard-water. This plant does well in bright indirect light, or medium light. Make sure that you let the soil dry out somewhat between waterings, don't keep the soil wet.

RE: dracaena massangeana spores or mushrooms??
