The Cordyline will do well in a room that gets a medium amount of natural light. Bright, sunny, or overly warm windows should be avoided. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Cordyline needs medium, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight.
Water when the top 1/2 inch of the soil is dry. When watering, water lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water. Keep the soil continuously moist, but reduce watering in the cold season.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided and the plant should be kept away from drafts and cold.
Prefers higher levels of humidity, around 75% or above. If the air around the plant is too dry, use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.
The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to a year. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have filled the bottom of the pot. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
Unhealthy Plant Signs
Browning and withering leaves may be a sign of underwatering. If you notice brown tips on the leaves despite proper watering, try switching your water to non-fluoridated or distilled water, as fluoride is mildly toxic to the Cordyline. The plant's colors will fade if it gets too cold, if it is not getting enough sunlight, or if the soil needs to be fertilized.
If ingested, may cause a harmful reaction in people and pets.
