Dracaena marginata - struggling ?

hello wise ones.

i was given this dragon tree houseplant a few months ago and it’s been in a warm sunny spot inside.
 from day one it hasn’t done well. I’ve only watered when soil is dry as advised. The leaves droop and are browning on the ends - it’s not also got some rust spots.

might it be worth trying it in a bigger pot? And perhaps outside now the weather is warmer?

thanks

    It's from Madagascar so wants full sun and protection from temps below 10 to 15 C.  Looks to me like one or two wee pests may be causing problems.   Have a look at this advice from the RHS - https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/31916/Dracaena-marginata-(v)/Details
