Dracaena (Dragon Plant)

A member of the Agave Family. These handsome foliage plants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and grow in different ways. They are among the most reliable of indoor plants; no matter how dark or sunny your home, you could easily find the right place for each of them. They range in size from 18 inches to 6 feet.

Medium to bright light, but no direct sun, is best to keep the leaves colorful.

Water freely from Spring to Fall, keeping the soil evenly moist. In Winter, let it dry out somewhat between waterings. Mist leaves frequently as they appreciate extra humidity.

Fertilize your Dracaena every two weeks during the growing season.

Re-pot using an all-purpose soil mix whenever it becomes necessary. Some plants need re-potted only every 2 to 3 years.
