How to Care for Cordyline Florica
Before you buy a Cordyline Florica Plant, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant happy and healthy.
What is the best light for Cordyline Florica Plants?
Cordyline Florica Plants perform well in bright, indirect light. Placing them in a well-lit bathroom with decent humidity is a perfect spot for them to live. If they are placed outside, they respond best to partial sun or shade. When placed in sunnier, but not direct sunlight, locations, their leaves will beam with vibrant, bright colors.
What is the best soil for Cordyline Florica Plants?
The Good Luck plant does best in soil that stays slightly moist. Regular potting mix works well, do your best to keep the soil from drying out too much that it compacts. If this happens, it can be difficult to rehydrate. Best rule is to wait for the surface layer of the soil to dry out before adding more water to your plant. In the winter months, the Cordyline can wait a few days in between watering while its growing process has slowed way down to allow the soil not to over saturate.
How do I water Cordyline Florica Plants?
Cordyline 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. However, shedding of old leaves is common and to be expected. They recover well from drying out occasionally. Placing your house plant on a tray filled with water and pebbles will help keep the humidity exactly where the plant will thrive. 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.
How do I Prune Cordyline Florica Plants?
Unlike conventional shrubs, Cordylines can be a bit confusing to prune. If you do so, you should limit yourself to only cutting off the dead leaves and spent flowers. Cut as close to the trunk as you possibly can, but make sure you do not pull the leaves off. This could lead to damaging not only the main trunk, but the flower heads too.
