Description

LIGHT: Although a Dracaena lemon lime Plant can adapt to low light, it does better in medium to indirect bright light. Too much direct bright light causes the color in the leaves to fade. Too little light and the new leaves are narrower than the older leaves.

WATER: Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering. If the soil is too wet or too dry the leaves develop brown tips. Always use non-fluoridated non chlorinated water for any type of dracaena plant. Dracaenas are very sensitive to chemicals in the water.

FERTILIZER: Dracaenas require very little fertilizer. Feed a monthly in spring and summer with a balanced liquid plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. It’s not necessary to feed dracaenas in the fall or winter.

TEMPERATURE: Provide warm temperatures between 70°-75° degrees if possible.

HUMIDITY: Dracaenas like high humidity but do well in basic household humidity.

FLOWERING: Although a dracaena lemon lime does bloom, it rarely flowers as a potted plant. White flowers may appear in summer if the plant gets bright indirect light but no direct sun.

PESTS: Mealy Bugs and spider mites are the house Plant Pests to look out for. Keeping the leaves clean and dust free helps prevent pest problems.

DISEASES: Fluoride toxicity causes long, tan to dark brown spots in the yellow stripes of dracaena lemon lime leaves. Fusarium Leaf Spot Disease produces reddish/ tan spots with wide, yellow halos on the new leaves.

SOIL: Use a fast-draining well-aerated loose soil. Dracaenas can even be grown in soil mixed with lava rock.
