Lemon Lime Dracaena,Dracaena deremensis
The Lemon Lime Dracaena will do well in a room that gets a medium amount of bright, indirect natural light. Overly sunny or warm windows should be avoided. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Lemon Lime Dracaena tolerates low light conditions but prefers medium, indirect sunlight to keep her bright coloring. Avoid placing her in direct sun, as the rays can scorch the leaves.
The Lemon Lime Dracaena requires less water than most indoor plants. When watering, water lightly and slowly from above with purified water, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water. Always allow the top 1 inch of soil to dry out before watering. Soggy soil should be avoided. Note: The Lemon Lime Dracaena is very sensitive to fluoride in water. If using tap water to water the plant, first let the water sit overnight in a container for the fluoride gas to dissipate into the air. Alternatively, you can use filtered or bottled water.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided.
Does well at normal (about 40% - 60%) humidity levels.
The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to 2 years. 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. Repot every 2 or 3 years in the Spring. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
Unhealthy Plant Signs
Browning leaves may be a sign of overwatering, or too much fluoride in the water. Drooping or yellowing leaves could indicate over-watering or poor drainage. It is normal for the Dracaena to drop leaves in order to grow new ones.
If ingested, may cause a harmful reaction in pets.
