It does look like Dracaena, perhaps the one called 'Mona Lisa' ... check out some of the photos about halfway to three quarters down this page: https://triadplantco.com/draca...

Maybe the 3rd pic on that link Anita Bush it says... the tops look correct. Im having a very hard time seeing the canes or stems on the pictures online ect.. in your link i couldnt see stems well either These look a little unique but i cant seem to find a pic of the stems themselves to tell if its right.. can you all see MY pics well enough?

The stems on your plant sure look like Dracaena stems, here are some examples from our database:

I'm still not certain but I'm leaning towards Dracena reflexa :

Im just not sure about that either plantladylin.
That looks much too large as the leaves are much larger than my plant.
The stock its self and how the leaves grow off the stock is perfectly correct as to how my plant is growing. This is one of the few plants we have been through that has look correct!!!
Only mine looks like a Minuture compared to this last pics of Dracaena angustifolia. Pleomele angustifolia..
I'm going to google search this plant with the pictures I just got from your post and see if i can find one that looks closer.. maybe these pics are just a much larger plant than mine. That means my plants has alot more growing to do. Exciting! !

There is the Lisa Can plant or Lisa these look close but after looking into it more I don't think so.. tops are little different and There is some yellow in in the leaves, my plant is a very dark green but the tips that are newer at the tops are light green turning dark green but not yellow.
Im.adding a picture of lisa and janet plants. They dont look like my plant from this photo

Im still looking but what do you think about the Anita bush plant. Do you feel this could be the correct answer?

Aha, I'd never heard of Dracaena reflexa 'Anita' but from the description, I bet that's it! We don't have a listing for that one in our database yet so I'll submit a proposal to add it.

Scroll down this page a little for a photo: http://www.costafarms.com/plan...

I have watered the plant very little except the day I repotted it.
When I repotted the plant I showered the entire plant including roots. Then I replaced it in new soil.
Its also getting worse much worse. πŸ˜•
I believe I have watered the plant 2 times since I repotted it. Once was today only because the soil was very dry. I have spayed it everyday with water atleast once sometimes twice a day.
I watered it with rain water the first time I watered it and I used tap water today which was only a little more than a cup of water. I was concerned about over watering so I didnt want to give it much water either time I watered it. If it was over watered it would have been from its move. When I repotted it I soaked the soil I put in the pot.
I do keep a fan on my plants to keep soils drying quickly as to not rot any roots.
Also the reason Im trying to spray atleast once a day . Im still learning the process I may need to be spraying more.
I dont know if over watering is the answer but anymore opinions? I am not happy with his look today!!!!

Something I just remembered I did do some thing different.
The first time I watered the plant after the move . I used rain water that I collect and stored on the deck for 4 days then used it to water my plants. It was very very cold water.? 32 degrees cold. Would this cause a problem. I just read something about using cold water. It was vague . But idk.... No other plant is affected not even the yucca that was also repotted in the exact same ways...also same soils, everything is the same. The Yucca looks great. Please anyone have any ideas? ?

That's a root problem I think, I've cases like this, caused by cold exposure, water problem (salt accumulation by using tap water), or chemicals in water. Plant's then look dehydrated, and the owner will add more water,--> root rot--> problem severed. Not all plants are the same, Dracaena reflexa (in this case 'Anita') is tropical, won't have the same cold tolerance to Yucca, or others. So sorry.. but seems like it is already bad, (as it looks like a lost case)... If its mine I will take out plant's from pot, check roots, remove rotting root, change soils, put it in warm humid bright area (as closed to tropical condition), water once then very sparingly (it is radical and could really risky to re-pot in winter). Or another option, take cutting from stems that are not wrinkled (bit mature stem) and put in water (DW/rain water, not chlorinated tap water) and wish for it to roots (some Dracaena do roots in water)....but yes both option are truly risky.

Wow, Im speechless
Thanks tofitropic for all the great info, I have looked up some on propagation and I plan to do more later on this morning, I'm hoping for some magic cure before I go ahead and propagate this guy.

I should have known better. I was just too excited about my great plant find!! I bought 8 house plants from a very nice lady online.
He looks even worse now.
Thumb of 2017-02-04/PamelaLynn77/14eecf

Im not sure if the stems are going to work for propagation as they are pretty wrinkled now???????

Thumb of 2017-02-04/PamelaLynn77/eb90f7

This is a very good picture of the stem. Maybe its not so bad for propagation? ???
Please anyone else wanna put in on this information or maybe some other magic cure! Damn it.. so frustrated right now. I thought he would be happier with the move.
Anyone care to share your thoughts on.. my biggest mistake ("were in the middle of winter here??? ")
I wasnt thinking .😳

This is an update for information for anyone who will take a look at this post and give your thoughts or ideas please.

I have taken into consideration somethings maybe rot root , but Idk what the issue is...I'm not certain we have really named it yet. Maybe shock???? 😦
I got the plant about 4 weeks ago. I repotted him almost 2 weeks ago. He seemed fine until about 5 days ago I noticed the yellowing leaves.
I've been watching him since and I'm just asking could the roots rot in the time since I repotted it or would it be that it was a problem before the move? Just curious.
I dug up some dirt to show you all the top of the roots now. They seem dry no yucky slimy or anything remotely close to slime. Again its more dry than anything the soil is lightly damp. I have rocks in bottom of pot then sand and soil then a layer of soil on top about 2 inchs . Adding pics.

The roots were about foot long maybe more i wrapped them around the pot and loosely put the soil on top when it was repotted. I dont believe this roots are rooten unless those ends have done so in the past 2 weeks.

Another thing for everyones info.
I decided to remove alot of his leaves thinking its less work for him right now also.. isnt this correct??
New pics after I recovered his roots and took some leaves off. Seems few leaves are standing up now?? Almost as if there getting perkier.. maybe that's just what I want to see..
Thumb of 2017-02-04/PamelaLynn77/9e5852

Think you can see a few leaves standing up here....
