    I know nothing of cordylines but that looks like a lot of root/stem for the size of the pot.

  • Your right again Nut.I have loads that i have been grwing from seed for several years now which are planted in pots and boarders,.Yours ogster is definately root bound.Repot it, giving it a couple of inches all around the pot use a good quality peat free compost mixed with grit for added drainage.

  • I agree with Diddy, it definitely needs re-potting.

    It may be worth trying to seperate one of the smaller shoots at the base when repotting,to give yourself another plant.

    That doesn't look like a Cordyline to me, looks like a variegated Yukka. I'd refresh in same pot, breaking some corms off to re-plant, and most of the others I'd throw, just leave some base to the growing bits. Put all in a mix of multi- purpose and grit, water in and leave in cold GH until spring.
