Below are some of the essential Care Tips for Dracaena Angustifolia:
- Soil: Loamy, well-drained, and slightly misted soil is ideal.
- Sunlight: Filtered indoor light or a semi-shade place is an ideal location. Never put a dracaena plant from direct sun, as the beams will scorch its foliage.
- Temperature: It grows better in temperature between 65°F – 80°F.
- Water: Dracaena demands less water than many indoor plants. Maintain them hydrated by misting the leaves and maintaining the soil misted (never soggy) as well with good drainage. Don’t overwater, as it may cause root rot.
- Fertilizer: Feed the plant once a month in spring and summer with water-soluble plant food. No need to fertilize in winters.
