Dracaena Care Guide

Dracaena houseplants are easy to care for and maintain. It tolerates low light conditions and has fairly low watering needs. Everything you need to know to grow Dracaena plants.

 

Lighting: Filtered indoor light (such as through a sheer curtain in front of a sunny window) or a semi-shade spot is an ideal location. Never place a dracaena plant in direct sun, as the rays will scorch its foliage.

 

Water: Keep your Dracaena hydrated by misting the leaves with water and keeping the soil lightly misted. Always allow the top soil to dry out before watering. Drooping or yellowing leaves could indicate over-watering or poor drainage.

 

Temperature: Dracaena prefers temperatures ranging from 65° – 78° during the day. Night temperatures can drop about ten degrees cooler, but cold drafts and temperatures below 55° will harm the plant.
