All of our plants are grown outdoors in nature and are exposed to the natural elements. Sometimes this means a leaf could have been chewed here and there or have a blemish or two – but we do our best to send the best plants we can on every order.

Dracaena is a popular genus of houseplants known for its attractive foliage and low maintenance requirements. Here are some tips to help you keep your Dracaena healthy:

  1. Light: Dracaenas prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch their leaves. However, they can tolerate lower light conditions, but their growth may slow down.

  2. Watering: Allow the top few centimeters or so of the soil to dry out between waterings. When you water, thoroughly soak the soil and allow excess water to drain away. Dracaenas are susceptible to root rot, so it's crucial not to let them sit in waterlogged soil.

  3. Humidity: Dracaenas can tolerate average indoor humidity levels, but they appreciate a slightly more humid environment. Misting the leaves occasionally or placing the plant on a pebble tray filled with water can help increase humidity around the plant.

  4. Temperature: Dracaenas prefer temperatures between 18-27°C. Avoid exposing them to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes, as they can be sensitive to these.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix for your Dracaena. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and/or sand works well. Repotting may be necessary every couple of years as the plant grows.

  6. Fertilizing: Feed your Dracaena with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing during the fall and winter months when growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Remove any yellowing or dead leaves regularly to keep the plant looking tidy. You can also prune the plant to control its size and shape if needed.

  8. Pests: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. If you notice any pests, gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth or use insecticidal soap to control the infestation.

By following these care tips, you can enjoy a healthy and vibrant Dracaena plant in your home or office.
