Humidity

Dracaena Mannii like high humidity but do well in basic household humidity.

Light

Dracaena Mannii grows best in medium light. When you select “Low Light” a list of the most adaptive plants in our database appears. These plants can live in lighting conditions too low to support any other plants in our database, but will grow faster in medium and high light. Rotate Dracaena Mannii weekly so that they don't grow toward the light, become one sided, and lose their beautiful shape..

Soil

Most well draining potting soil mix types are fine to use.

Temperature

Dracaena Mannii do well in temperatures between 65°-80°F (18°-26.5°C).

Watering

Like all Dracaena, allow the top 50-75% of the soil to dry out before watering. Dracaena Mannii survives under-watering, but quickly dies from over-watering. If your water contains fluoride or chlorine, allow it sit out over-night before using it so the chemicals can dissipate. High concentrations of fluoride damage the leaves and cause brown leaf tips. Never use water that has passed through a softener; it is too salty and causes leaf damage.

Fertilizing

Feed monthly in the spring and summer when the plant is actively growing with a basic houseplant food diluted to 1/4 the recommended strength.

Propagation

You can use Stem Cuttings.
