Light and Temperature Requirements – Dracaena plants thrive best in warm environments, with moderate to bright filtered sunlight. They can survive in low light conditions as well, but too much direct, harsh sunlight will scorch their leaves.
Avoid placing them in areas with direct blasts of cold drafts from open windows, air conditioners, etc. Continuous exposure to dry, cold winds will make the leaves start turning brown.
Soil Conditions – Dracaenas are happiest in rich, loamy, well-drained soils. Avoid placing in wet soils at all costs, as the roots start to rot in the dampness.
Water Requirements – When it comes to watering Dracaena, a good rule to follow is to water them only when the soil feels dry to touch. Then, water them fully, until the water starts to flow out from the bottom of the pot. Then let the soil dry out before you water them again.
Food Requirements – The best Dracaena indoor plant care involves giving them a monthly dosage of liquid fertilizer during the spring and summer months. No fertilizer is needed during the winter months, as their growth naturally slows down.
