Dracaenas are easy-to-propagate plants with a penchant for reaching high heights with their fan-like leaves. A great step up for beginner plant parents looking for something with a little more subtlety to their care regimen than a basic Ivy or Spider plant, and with a lot of height and "wow" factor, the Dracaena is sure to be a welcome addition to an ever-growing plant collection!

CARE LEVEL: Casual Plant Enthusiast


Dracaena plant care involves keeping the soil of houseplant dracaena moist, but never soggy. Drooping or yellowing leaves indicate over-watering or poor drainage. Learning how to care for a dracaena includes finding well-draining soil in which to grow your houseplant dracaena. Appropriate fertilization is also a part of how to care for a dracaena. Feed every two weeks in spring and summer with a balanced houseplant fertilizer. Reduce fertilization to once a month during fall. When growing a dracaena plant, stop feeding during winter months, as the plant benefits from a period of dormancy. When growing a dracaena plant, locate it in brightly filtered light, such as through a sheer curtain in front of a sunny window.
