My dracena pot had 3 separate plants. One plant looked had a meltdown, its leaves are splayed & drooping. How do I prevent the other 2 plants from going the same way? Thanks!

Overwatering can cause a dracaena to look droopy. You may need to unpot your plant and remove the sad looking one by cutting the roots away from the other two healthy ones. Dracaena can tolerate soils that are kept on the dry side. If they are watered too often, root rot can kill them off. Try watering throughly then allowng the top half inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Hope your plants thrive for you!
