    dying draceana massangeana

    Hello manda_leiigh2425. Ken here in the Chicago area. Welcome to the forum.
    I think you can save your plant. If the cane with the green leaves and brown tips
    doesnít get any worse then you are OK. If the other two canes donít start to turn
    yellow then they are OK too. Look for new growth on them. If you donít get any
    new growth on them cut them down.
    Just donít let the plant sit in water. What I do with my houseplants is take them
    to the bathtub to water them. I let them drain and then take them back to their
    saucers. Good luck and let us know what happens. Take care.
