I think it was about 18 months ago when I got this Dracaena. I brought it home and nearly repotted it out of it's tiny pot and you stopped me in my tracks!
It's a happy plant and I'm probably watering every 6/7 days at the moment. I'm not sure whether to still leave it as it is? It hasn't grown very much in the last while but I'm not sure if that's related to the pot size. I'd appreciate your advice once again I'm all ears!

Hi Aphria - How far down into the soil does it get dry just before you water? How far do you keep it from the nearest window?

It's here, a bit more than 4ft I'd say?
It's normally dry about an inch down when I water.

I would suggest that you wait until it requires water at least twice per week before you repot.
