Humidity

Normal room humidity is fine.

Light

Dracaena Pinguicula will grow in low light, but most other varieties - thrive in filtered, bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can damage the leaves, unless the plant was originally grown in direct sun.

Soil

Use a good, loose houseplant soil that drains quickly.

Temperature

Dracaena Pinguicula like comfortable room temperatures between 65-80 degrees.

Watering

Allow the soil of your Dracaena Pinguicula to dry out slightly between watering, then water thoroughly until water comes out of the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot. Discard any excess water that has collected in the saucer -your Dracaena Pinguicula does not like to sit in water. Too many yellow leaves mean the plant is staying too wet, and brown leaves indicate that it's too dry.

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

Use 3'-5" stem tip cuttings. Allow cuttings to sit out overnight before planting several in a small pot of loose soil; this allows the cut end to dry out and helps prevent root rot.
