Dracaena enjoy bright indirect light or semi-shade. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, as this can burn the leaves.
Dracaena do not require as frequent watering as other houseplants. Make sure you have a well draining pot, and only water after the top inch or two of soil has dried out.
Dracaena are hardy plants, and will do fine at normal room humidity levels. However, they do enjoy higher humidity as tropical plants so an occasional misting would be beneficial.
Dracaena prefer to be in environments ranging from 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool draft below 55 degrees can harm the plant and do damage to its leaves.
During the spring and summer, fertilize once a month with a standard houseplant fertilizer.
Dracaena are mildly toxic to pets. Can cause skin, mouth or digestive irritation.
Dracaena are sensitive to fluoride from tapwater. If the leaves are browning and there are brown spots with yellowing edges, try using filtered water instead of tap. If the leaves at the base of the plant are falling off - don't worry! That is a natural part of the growth process.
