Dracaena Umbraculifera Care
Your Dracaena Umbraculifera will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate regular misting.
Your Dracaena Umbraculifera prefers bright, indirect sunlight, but can survive in low light situations.
Dracaena Umbraculifera plants grow well in a loose, quick-draining soil. These plants are from Hawaii and often arrive planted in lava rock. Remove 1/3 of the lava rock and replace it with a good potting mix.
These plants prefer temperatures between 70°-80°F (21.1°- 26.7°C).
I would advise a grower to keep the soil slightly damp to the touch and in the winter slightly dry.
Fertilize monthly in the spring and summer with an African Violet Plus Plant Food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength.
Dracaena Umbraculifera cuttings root in water, but the preferred method is to root them in a potting soil using a 5"-8" cuttings from the plant. Note which end of each cutting is the top and which is the bottom so you can plant them in the right direction.
