Temperature

Dracaena Sanderiana like warm room temperatures 60-75°F (16-24°C). Cold winter drafts and heaters can damage the leaves.

Watering

Overwatering causes root rot and is the main reason a Dracaena Sanderiana plant dies. Water your Dracaena Sanderiana well and allow the top 50% of the soil to dry before watering again. Brown tips on the leaves can indicate overwatering while numerous yellow leaves mean the plant needs more water.

Fertilizing

It's not necessary to fertilize your Dracaena Sanderiana, but they benefit from you feeding them once a month during the growing season with a ¼ diluted complete liquid fertilizer or fish emulsion. You can also top-dress the plant at the start of the growing season with a rich compost.

Propagation
