I'm hoping someone knew what type of palm that was. I inherited an identical palm to this one at work and it is in pretty sad shape. It is about 6 1/2 feet tall and not looking well at all. Can I cut it back?

Please someone identify it so that I can try and find out how to help it!

Default Thats actually not a palm tree... its a Dracaena Plant

It looks like its having a hard time where its at....Is it getting watered regularly? Is the dracaena near an air vent where ac is blowing on it? Are the leaves touching a hot surface? Hows the soil content for the Dracaena, is it root bound? Rootbound means there is no more area for the roots to grow and they start popping up on top of the soil. If thats the case then you can cut off the bottom of the roots and replace it in the same pot. It will lose some leaves but it will come back. Also how old is your Dracaena? What type of fertilizer are you using for the Dracaena and have you moved it from its original growing spot?

hopefully we can find out what we can do to make it green and lush again! I would hate to see a plant as nice as that die on you.
