In most cases, Dracaena Marginatas can be saved, although it does depend on how severe the damage is. Before depicting how to revive your dracaena, you must find the exact problem. If you’re unsure precisely what it is, speaking about it with a garden specialist may be helpful. However, the following solutions help resolve the most common issues in these plants.

Overwatered Or Underwatered?

Resolving this issue can go one of two ways, depending on whether the plant’s root has been damaged. If the source appears damaged, you should consider planting it in fresh soil. Before repotting, you should trim off the damaged areas with clean shears. However, this may not permanently save your plant. If there isn’t any damage to the roots, you should be able to resolve the issue by providing a light mist of water to the leaves and keeping an eye on the soil to ensure the water drains.
