Question: I have a red-leafed Dracaena marginata. I’ve had other dracaenas, and they have been excellent houseplants, but this one seems quite angry to be in our home. It looks wilted, and it’s lost most of its leaves.

Answer: That one dracaena needs more light than any of the other common varieties. Fact is, it really needs to be grown in a bright west window or under a bright skylight. Hopefully you can move it and watch it regain its vigor.
