Dracaena Lemon Lime

  • The dracaena plant is a popular ornamental houseplant, grown both indoors and outdoors in subtropical climates.
  • It reaches a height of about three feet indoors and has a bushy tree type of look.
  • Its glossy leaves can grow up to one foot long and a couple of inches wide.
  • From the asparagus family (Asparagaceae), the genus dracaena comprises about 40 species.
  • The most popular cultivar is the yellow-edged Variegata type named Song of India.
  • An interesting fact about dracaena is that it possesses a secondary thickening meristem (the tissue which helps plants grow).
  • Its secondary meristem allows it to grow wide, thick and succulent roots.
  • Not only does its dramatic foliage with beautiful color patterns make a great focal point in any room, but dracaena can also help improve air quality.
  • Wiping both the upper surfaces and undersides of the leaves regularly with a damp cloth allows the plant to exchange air freely.
SOIL
  • Always use a loose, quick-draining soil for any dracaena
  • This helps prevent over-watering and root rot.
  • Add sand to your regular potting mixture if the soil doesn’t drain quickly enough.
FERTILIZER
  • Feed monthly in the spring and summer when the plant is actively growing with a basic houseplant food diluted to 1/4 the recommended strength.
LIGHT
  • 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
  • Dracaena requires less water than most indoor plants.
  • Keep them hydrated by misting the leaves with water and keeping the soil lightly misted (never soggy) as well with good drainage.
  • Always allow the topsoil to dry out before watering.
  • Do not overwater, as it may cause root rot.
  • Drooping or yellowing leaves could indicate over-watering or poor drainage, but don’t worry if you notice the bottom leaves beginning to turn yellow and fall.
  • It is normal for dracaena to shed leaves in order to grow new ones.
  • These plants are sensitive to fluoride, which can be found in tap water, so it’s essential to use purified water when caring for this plant.
  • Leaves with dark brown and dead areas with yellow edges may indicate fluoride toxicity.
