Dracaena, Kiwi

Dracaenas are easy to grow and tolerate a wide array of conditions. As new leaves emerge from the top, the mature leaves on the bottom drop away. If leaf tips get brown (from dry air) just snip them off with scissors and if bottom leaves turn brown, simply remove them. Yellowing can be a sign of over-watering. Dracaenas are excellent at cleansing the air of impurities and harmful chemicals.

Light

Tolerant of low light but will do their best with indirect light. Avoid direct sun in the afternoon. Plants grown in low light grow very slowly.

Water

Water thoroughly, then allow the top two inches to dry before watering again. Do not allow them to stand with water in the saucer for more than an hour.

Fertilizer

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

Origin

Native to the rain forests of Brazil
