Plants in the Dracaena group are some of the easiest plants to grow. They come in several colors and variegations. Most display a rosette of long, strap-like leaves. Well-known varieties are warneckii, marginata, sanderiana, Song of India, godseffiana, fragrans, 'Rikki' and massangeana.

 

 

TEMPERATURE: Generally speaking, plants in this group require average household temperatures with a minimum of 55° at night in the winter.

LIGHT: Light shade is best for most plants. Ideal locations are an east or west window.

WATER: Watering appropriately is essential to healthy dracaenas. Keep the soil moist at all times. Water less in the winter but do not allow it to totally dry out. Mist often to keep the humidity high.

Depending on variety, some of these plants are available in 3", 6", 8" and 10" pots.
