Dracaena Song of India
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.
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 require less water than most indoor plants. Water when the 100% of soil is dry.
*We recommend Bottom-watering, sometimes called reverse watering, is when you place a plant in a bowl of water, allowing the soil and roots to soak water from the bottom up. (Naturally, your pot needs to have drainage holes for this to work
Temperatures: 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.
Toxicity: Toxic to cats and dogs, if eaten.
Tips: It is sensitive to an excess of fluoride which is found in tap water and will present with brown or yellow margins of its leaves. If you do not have a filtration system, leaving the tap water in an open container overnight before watering can help remove some of the fluorides.
