Dracaena Plant Care: Basic Care Tips to Follow

While relatively low maintenance, Dracaena plants still need their basic care requirements met in order to thrive and flourish in their immediate surroundings. Here are a few Dracaena plant care tips to follow:

1. Light Requirements

Dracaena plants grow best in indirect light. While they can tolerate low light, giving them bright, indirect sunlight can promote optimal growth. Remember to always protect them from direct sunlight during the harsh afternoon sun as prolonged exposure can scorch the leaves. But during early morning and late evening, you can place your plant in direct sunlight as it is softer and will make it happier!

2. Watering

Most Dracaena plant types need watering on a weekly basis while some others could need more regular watering depending on their individual needs. However, when you’re watering the plant, water it deeply and ensure that all excess water drains out of the drainage hole.

3. Soil

Dracaena plants also require well-drained and aerated soil. This means that the soil you’re using must retain just enough moisture and not excessive water. For this, you can use a mix of our potting soil, perlite, and cow or goat manure for optimal water retention, drainage, and growth.

4. Humidity Requirements

Dracaena varieties require moderate humidity levels but can also adapt to lower levels. Ensure occasional moisture to give them the little bit of humidity that they need.

5. Fertilization

Dracaena plants should be fertilized and fed a balanced diet of nutrients with a balanced, liquid fertilizer diluted with water. During the growing season, remember to fertilize these plants at least once a month and during dormant periods, you can eliminate or reduce fertilization. If you’re unable to keep up with a schedule for the same, you can also make use of our Plant Food Fertilizer Sticks that will ensure a slow and balanced supply of nutrients every time you water your plants.
