Hey all! Brand new member here.
First off, I'm grateful that a community like this exists, thank you all for your help and support.

I have a Dracaena Fragrans (I believe) and it has begun developing some yellow/browning on the leaves. Can anyone help me identify the issue and the best possible solution?

I water it about once a week, depending on dryness of the soil, always taking care not to over-water.
I Miracle Gro fertilize about twice a month.
I provided a picture of the plant near its window--it's a west-facing window that I try to keep the shades closed on so it doesn't get too much direct sunlight.

Thanks for your time! :)

Its fertilizer burn, so cut the fertilizer or it will get worse. Most indoor house plants won't need high amounts of nitrogen, and if you give it to them when they don't need it, the tips and edges will burn.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Dear OneEyeLuke,

Thank you! I never considered that that could be the issue.
I will cut back on fertilizing immediately and see if that helps.
I appreciate your response very much :)

Thank You!
