Dracaena’s are good beginners plant since it does fine in lower light conditions and sparse watering habits.

The typical leaf shade is green but Dracaena’s can be found with colored stripes of yellow, white, or red.

The Dirt

Native to Africa, Southern Asia, and Northern Australia. Dracaena is derived from Ancient Greek meaning female dragon. Dracaena’s grow upright and the stem is called cane. These houseplants can increase to be 10ft in height. In order to propagate or control the height you will need to cut the top of the cane. Not harmful to humans but toxic for animals. The lower leaves may fall off, but that is just the nature of the plant, don’t overly worry. 

Part Sun


This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Low


Water every three weeks. Let soil dry up before watering. Feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry, wait two days. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.


Pet Toxic


Only when ingested it may cause mild oral and gastrointestinal upsetness. Keep out of reach from pets and small children.

Care Tips

When watering, aim for the soil, so that the roots receive the water and it does not get stuck in the nods. If so, rot can appear

The soil should not be soggy but moist. If overwatered, the leaves might become yellow 

Dracaena’s are fairly disease resistant but can get the occasional pest when the temperatures are hot or when air is too dry. The pests hide in the nodes under the leaves so keep an eye out and spray them off with warm water if seen
