e i have a dracena magrata plant i have had it f or a year it has done really well until recently
the tips of the leaves are drying and curling up i water about every three weeks i intially had it on a sideboard near the windows and about 4foot from a raditor i have now moved it to the other side of the room but the problem persits

no, i wouldn't replant if it can wait that long for water. and keeping the smaller plant with it is good for the health of both in this instance. the problem you have is the overall humidity isn't hight enough. take a shallow tray, put some rocks or pebbles or something for the pot to sit up on, out of the bottom of the tray, the fill the tray with water, just until it doesn't touch the pot.

also, watering once every 3 weeks may not be enough. check the soil to see if it is dry sooner, if so, give it a "small drink" between times.

might be a combo of just time for a growth spurt and the miracle gro. just be careful not to over feed.
