It looks like your Dracaena marginata has received good care from you. Thumbs up It is good that you have double-potted it rather than moved it into the large outer pot. Marginata roots are very susceptible to root rot when growing indoors in mostly indirect sunlight. Over-potting often leads to root rot. Yours may very well stay in that pot indefinitely. Fertilize it very sparingly and allow the top inch or so of soil to dry between waterings. This is a favorite host for spider mites, so be vigilant. If you want to propagate this plant, air-layering is the best method.
