Care Instructions - Dracaena

Dracaenas are a group of houseplants you just can't go wrong with. Why? They're among the easiest and most common indoor plants around. Young plants are small and bushy, making them perfect residents of desks and tabletops. Older dracaenas develop woody stems and can become tree like. In fact, after years and years, many healthy dracaenas can reach 5 or 6 feet tall. They're ideal for adding a bold splash of texture to your indoor decor. 

Add interest by selecting varieties variegated with contrasting colors. Striped-type dracaena offers just that: Beautiful leaves that look good by themselves or in combination with other plants. 

Dracaena love bright filtered light and deep but infrequent watering
18-26° Celsius
Loose, well-draining potting mix 
Bright, indirect light, direct light will burn leaves
Water the Dracaena deeply, but infrequently, they need good drainage.

It’s not necessary to fertilise your Dracaenas, but they benefit from you feeding them once a month during the growing season with a ¼ diluted complete liquid fertiliser or fish emulsion.
