Hi! I have a young dragon tree that i've had 6 years that I raised from a seed. I had her in a pot and thought it might be too big for her so I took her out to transplant her and she has no roots! Just a stick! But here's the thing, her leaves are bright green and none have fallen off. She just isn't growing or moving towards the light. I just bought fungicide and rooting powder. Do I have to cut the stem? What exactly happened to my plant? Thanks!

Hi & welcome! Are you able to add a pic? If not, is your dragon tree the same kind as this?
Madagascar Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata)

This doesn't sound like a Marginata. Do post a photo that shows the entire plant, including its pot.

Yes, some sort of succulent seems more likely from the staying green with no roots part. Very interesting. We are not trying to be picky about the name of your plant, but determining what it is will be necessary to relate any personal experiences.
