Answer: Dracaena is a medium-light houseplant; the site you describe sounds just fine. I suspect the plants are adjusting to life indoors where temperature, humidity and light levels are different than they were experiencing indoors. Dropping of lower leaves is normal; you'll eventually end up with a tall, bare stems and a topknot of foliage. This is the nature of dracaena's growth. You can cut the stems back in the spring and have two new stems with foliage along their lengths. Next winter they will again drop their lower leaves. Dracaena won't go dormant indoors so if growth completely stops or the plants lose all their leaves, cut the main stem back and two new stems should develop. Best wishes with your dracaena's!
