Dracaena Marginata - mold in soil

VJmotionJune 11, 2014

Hello! I had a fantastic Dracaena Marginata tree in my home that started dropping leaves. Upon inspection, I found mold in the soil. I repotted... but it did not help, soon after the stems of the tree started to rot. Now, I just found another Dracaena Marginata in my home with the same mold. Can anyone help diagnose this problem, help with a solution and perhaps explain why this is happening? Very much appreciated. The current Dracaena Marginata with this problem I've had for 17 years and am concerned I'll loose it. :(

What mind of potting medium is in the container and how frequently have you repotted?

repotted very very rarely. But it's always done very well. potting medium is regular potting soil. But the plant has never had any problems before.
