This Dracaena Janet Craig plant in a 4-inch pot is great for assortments or small spaces in the home or office. Dracaenas compose of a large group of popular foliage plants. Most grow strongly upright with long variegated leaves with a large array of colors. Dracaenas grow well at average room temperatures and like ample light.
Here are some care tips for your new Dracaena:
Origin: Tropical East Africa
Height: Up to 10 ft (3 m) if not pruned back
Light: Moderate to bright light. Keep plant out of direct sunlight which can scorch its leaves, leaving brown marks. Pale leaves can indicate that light is too low.
Water: These Dracaena will tolerate many abuses, but not soggy soil. Water thoroughly, allowing the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water less in winter, when light levels are lower and growth has slowed. Use a pot with a drainage hole to prevent wet soil. Overwatering will cause leaves to turn yellow and fall off.
Humidity: 40-50% relative humidity.
Temperature: Average room temperatures (65-75°F/18-24°C)
Soil: Any good-quality potting mix
Fertilizer: Feed monthly year-round with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half.
Propagation: Take 4 in (10 cm) stem tip cuttings in spring and root them in moist soil.
