How to Care for Cordyline Red Star

Before you buy a Cordyline Red Star Plant, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving.

What is the best light for Cordyline Red Star Plants?

What is the best light for Cordyline Red Star Plants?

Cordyline Red Star Plants perform well in fluorescent light like office buildings or atriums or anywhere away from direct light. They can handle the bright, indirect light found in a northern or partially shaded eastern windowsill. Western or southern exposure would work as long as the plant is away from the window or the window is well shaded.

What is the best soil for Cordyline Red Star Plants?

What is the best soil for Cordyline Red Star Plants?

Cordyline Red Star does best in soil that stays slightly moist. Regular potting mix works well, try to keep the soil from drying out too much that it compacts, as it can be difficult to rehydrate.

How do I water Cordyline Red Star Plants?

How do I water Cordyline Red Star Plants?

Cordyline Red Star Plants like to stay slightly moist, not too wet or too dry. Too many yellow leaves means the plant is staying wet too often, whereas brown tips to the leaves means it has been kept too dry. They recover well from drying out occasionally. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs to be watered is by the weight of the container. If the container is very heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn't need water, whereas a light container and limp foliage means the plant needs some water. Sometimes, water pours out of the container without being retained by the soil. Soaking the dry soil in a small dish or saucer can be a useful way to solve this problem. It is important not to water the foliage of these plants, or to over-water them as this will lead to leaf damage or plant death. If you're unsure, it is always better to let the plant go dry instead of drenching it with water. Moisture meters are another easy way to tell if plants need to be watered, and usually come with a guide to indicate what number or level of moisture different plants require.

How do I fertilize Cordyline Red Star Plants?

How do I fertilize Cordyline Red Star Plants?

Any all purpose, fertilizer will work for Cordyline Red Star Plants. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment.
