I have a Dracaena draco that is around 3-4 feet tall , it was always healty however i have moved it inside because of winter. I placed it at the back patio to get around 4-6 direct light and 1 hour direct sun.
The problem i have is the leaves are turning .. some are bending to where it looks closed the leave.
So others are twisting .
I noticed the soil was always wet so i just replaced the soil adn hope this will make a difference.

any suggestions or ideas

Sounds like you are overwatering. I keep mine very cool (in the garage) but also very dry until the weather warms. Could be you had some rotting of roots. Back way off on watering and keep an eye on it.

let it dry between waterings when its cooler.
I dont envy you at all having to bring it in and out..
Mine is in a 15 Gallon pot, about 6' tall and takes 4 of us to move it, trunk is about 6" - 7" in diameter. These are HEAVY trees.
