Cordyline yellowing

Hi there, 

just looking for help with my cordyline fruitosa Rubra. The top of the plant is so lush & green but bottom leaves are either half brown & dead or turning yellow.... what does this mean? 


  • It isn't a water quality issue either, I water with rain water :)

    They shed lower leaves as part of their growth habit, Rebecca. I expect that's the reason. They gradually get a longer trunk with the foliage at the top.  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • Thanks for letting me know :)
