Ti plant with a history.

Ti plant with a history. (Cordyline terminalis (Dracaena))

I bought this 3, maybe 4, years ago. It declined fast in my shady backyard. So the next year or two,I moved it to the porch..and thats when slugs ate it down to short 3" or so sticks with just tiny leaves. I was ready to throw it away in spring 2014. Only,as I watched TV shows about moving to the tropics...all the Ti plants were in sunlight. So,I took it off the porch and put it by the side stairs. Lo and Behold,it started to grow. I swear that until then I couldn't remember what color it even had been. It grew well last summer..grew well this summer. Next year,I think that old soil should be partly removed and fresh potting soil added.
It had a strong will to live,that's the least it deserves.

I quite agree, any plant that has fought this hard to live deserves every chance it can be given.
