Please help my Kiwi Ti houseplant! (Cordyline fruticosa)

Hi, i have had my Kiwi ti plant for 2 years, recently it’s bottom leaves have been quickly turning yellow and dry/crispy. 
I currently have 3 yellow leaves and 2 have died in the last week. 
The plant is misted daily and was repotted in spring this year. It is currently by a south facing window however i suspect it has not had very much sun due to the very poor winter weather i have had the last month. In winter, i water the plant once it’s dry. 

Any ideas? 
Many thanks


  • It is normal for the lower leaves to die off - like us, they won't live forever ;)

    Difficult to see properly but the compost does look rather wet and unless the room is exceptionally dry, misting it daily would be rather OTT.

    Can't tell the height of the plant or the pot size from your pics but it may be worthwhile removing it from the pot and check whether it is rootbound or whether the roots are waterlogged.

    The top of the plant looks very healthy so all is not lost :)
