Planting and 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 Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Part shade to full shade Loose, well-drained potting mix Allow the plants to dry between watering, but not completely. They thrive between 65 degrees F and 80 degrees F. They will suffer if it gets too cold and cannot tolerate freezing. Fertilize lightly at the beginning of spring or twice a year with controlled-release fertilizer.

Caring for Dracaena Mahatma

  • Grows best in a well-drained, peaty potting mixture.
  • Plants need bright indirect light but tolerate light shade. Avoid direct sun.
  • Needs consistently moist soils from spring to fall.
