Dragon tree roots smell what should I do?

United Kingdom Gb

The roots of my Dragon tree smell what should I do? I have just moved. thanks Ann

On plant Dracaena marginata



What do they smell of? Rotten or mushroomy or what? Knock the plant out of the pot and inspect them for rot. Replant in fresh compost if OK. If any are rotten, trim the rotten ones off first. Have you left it standing in a saucer of water? That would make smells.
