Marginata (Dracaena marginata) - Plant
These are some of the best house plants and make great additions to any home while requiring minimal care. Bright indirect light is best and they will take some morning sun. Most Dracaena will tolerate lower light levels for some time with reduced watering frequency.
Height: 6 to 10 feet
Difficulty level: Easy.
Planting & Care
The best way to grow dracaenas is to buy a small one from us and plant it in a simple pot. After that, the necessary care is very simple. Plants that are dark green usually require less light than those that have any kind of colour in their leaves. The less light a plant has, the slower it grows. The slower it grows the less water and fertilizer it needs.
Sunlight: Bright light.
Soil: Loose, well-drained potting mix.
Water: Allow the plants to dry between watering, but not completely.
Temprature: They thrive between 65°F and 80°F. They will suffer if it gets too cold and cannot tolerate freezing.
Fertilizer: Fertilize lightly at the beginning of spring or twice a year with controlled-release fertilizer.
- marginata is sensitive to fluoride, which can cause discolouration.
- Water with distilled or non-fluoridated water.
- Used as indoor plant in home and offices.
