Help with Dragon Tree houseplant please

Hi,
I've have a dragon tree houseplant for about 10 years now but I decided to repot it about two weeks ago.
Since then it appears to have developed some yellow mottling on the upper sides of the leaf (in the middle, mostly, not at the tips) which I'm concerned about. It seems to mostly be affecting the new leaves, too.
I've read that yellowing leaves can be due to the roots rotting after being repotted due to the soil being wetter but the soil is fairly dry.
I've also read that spider mites can cause this but I've not been able to 'see any.'
Can anyone help, please?
Thanks JR

Does the new pot have a drainage hole in the bottom? How big's the pot? How much water did you apply after repotting?

You have a Dracaena Marginata . If you think the problem might be spider mite you can mist it with water and look for webs. These are sooner seen than the tiny spider critter. There's loads of information about your plant at this link: http://www.dracaena.com/dracaena-marginata.php

Hi,
Thanks for the advice. The pot does have a drainage hole and it seems to be clear. It's not been watered any more than usual, either.
The leaves seem to be yellowing at the tips now.
I've not tried misting it as I have nothing to do that with but I'll look into it tomorrow.
Thanks again, JR

I wouldn't mist it. If anything, those plants prefer being a little on the dry side. Take a really close look at the leaves for any infestations, and report back here.
