Dracaena Suffruticosa Care
Your Dracaena Suffruticosa will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate regular misting.
Dracaena Suffruticosa plants grow slowly in low light. Placing a Dracaena Suffruticosa in the sun outside for even a few minutes, burns the leaves.
Most well draining potting soil mix types are fine to use.
Your Dracaena Suffruticosa likes comfortable room temperatures between 65-80 degrees. They do not do well in temperatures below 55 degrees. Cold winter drafts and blowing heaters will damage the leaves.
Keeping the soil slightly moist is the best indicator of correct watering. During the winter, like most plants they need much less.
This plant likes to be fed every two weeks in the spring and summer with a well-balanced plant food at half the recommended strength. No food is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any fertilizer.
These are quite easy to propagate from stem tip cuttings, best done in spring or summer. You can also cut a new or old rosette and re-plant it. After replanting keep the soil moist and mist the leaves which will encourage the plant to grow. A tall plant can be propagated using the air layering method.
