Lemon Lime Dracaena: Dracena Deremensis

LIGHT

This plant can adapt to low light conditions but does better in bright indirect light. Too little light and the new leaves may bay narrower than the old leaves. Avoid direct light, too much may cause discoloration in the leaves to fade.

WATER

Prefers moist soil that does not become too soggy. Keep soil moist in growing seasons, but only water when the top 50% of the soil is dry in the fall and winter. This plant is sensitive to chemicals in the water and prefers filtered, room temperature water. If using tap water, poor the water the night before and allow for the fluoride to dissipate overnight before watering your plant.

TEMPERATURE

Ideal temperature is 70-90°F if possible.

AIR

High humidity is preferred but can also do well in basic household humidity if necessary.

GROWTH

The dracaena plant can grow up to 5-7' in height. Fertilizer is not necessary, but consider feeding your plant once a month in spring and summer. Use only half the recommend fertilizer for best results. Give this plant a rest in winter from any fertilizers.

TOXICITY

Keep away from children and pets. It is toxic to dogs and cats and may cause vomiting, lethargy, and dilated pupils if eaten.
