8” pot large floor plant braided Dracaenas. 4.5’ height.
Dracaenas have a reputation for not needing a lot of water. True, but they need a thorough soaking when the soil dries out! Remember -- all plants need water! Dracaenas planted in a six-inch pot should be watered when the soil is dry four inches below the top. Use filtered water, rainwater, or distilled water, as these plants don’t like salts or minerals. Dracaenas prefer dry soil; soggy soil promotes fungus and root rot.
The ideal temperatures for Dracaenas are those above 65℉. Sudden coldness can damage the leaves, so keep them away from drafty doors and windows during the colder months.
Dracaena house plants benefit from higher humidity levels during summer, or when they’re in heated, forced-air environments.
