    Caring for Marginata

      Sunlight
    • Dracaena marginata plants prefer medium light but survive in lower light situations.
    • Lower light slows down the growth rate and reduces the size of new leaves.

    • Soil
    • It require well-drained soil rich in organic matter.

    • Watering
    • Water only when the soil feels dry to touch.
    • Soil must never be allowed to dry out completely.

    • Application of Fertilizer
    • Apply organic fertilizers during spring and rainy season.
    • Loosen the soil without damaging the roots. It will help the plant to uptake the nutrients and moisture easily.

    • Repotting
    • When a plant outgrows in current pot, re-pot with fresh potting soil and some fertilizer.
    • Do the re-potting late evening and keep the plant in shady area for 2 to 3 days and then move the plant in required light condition.

    • Pruning
    • Prune your plants in the spring before they hit the growth period as it help the plant to remain healthy.
    • Always use a sharp blade or pruning shears when pruning your plants.
    • If you use a dull blade, this can hurt the plant and make it more challenging for it to heal.

    • Plant Protection
