Dracaena, Janet Craig

Janet Craig is one of the most popular Draceanas used indoors, due to it‘s ability to grow in low light and to tolerate considerable dryness. An occasional dropped leaf is normal. Yellow and brown tipping of Janet Craig leaves is quite common as they age. There are a number of causes for this: Allowing the soil to get too dry or too wet, even just once in a while. Using water that is on the hard side (switch to filtered or distilled). Using fertilizer at more than half the recommended strength can also cause burning.

Light

Plant can be acclimated to fairly low light levels as long as water is reduced with light.

Water

Proper watering is the trick to keeping this plants’ full appearance. In low light water sparingly, allowing the top several inches of soil to dry down.

Fertilizer

For optimum plant health, fertilize with an all-purpose houseplant food April through October, following label directions at half strength. For all other months, fertilize half as often.
