Hi everyone! I need help identifying a plant. It came in a small wooden planter with 4 other plants where it lived happily for about a year and a half. I recently separated them, and this poor guy doesn't seem to be doing very well. It has a great deal of sentimental value to me, and I want to rescue it :)

Thanks in advance!

Dracaena Marginata
The original Dragon tree.The leaves have a narrow red purple like banding along the edges, with the central parts being a darker green. It can get quite tall if you repot and place in direct sun.

Hi & welcome!

It looks within the range of normal for a potted, indoor specimen.
