Hi All,

we have been given a Cordyline indivisa ( i think) from my parants, i relocated this from their house to ours and ever since the leaves(spikes) have droopped and they wont returnted to the erect position they was in at my parants house.(SEE ATTACHED PIC)
i was wondering whether its a case of trimm the leaves so new ones grow or is this tree dead?..
as you can see its about 3.5-4ft high and it looked great until i moved it. its been ike it for 3 weeks  -

I have never seen one,

I am sure it went into shock..
I wouldn't remove the leaves yet, but keep a slow drip of water going under it for now, and give it some root grow, If it is in full sun, I would place a sheet over it until it picks back up

You may loose some leaves so don't be alarmed if this happens, as long as you have a few left over.
It looks like to me, one or two leaves are starting to pick back up, just keep waterning it well and give it some root grow, to help it recover from the shock.
