How to Care for Limelight Dracaena
Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
What is the best light for Limelight Dracaena?
Limelight Dracaena performs well in fluorescent light like office buildings or atriums or anywhere away from direct sunlight. 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.
How do I water Limelight Dracaena?
Limelight Dracaena likes to stay slightly moist, not too wet or too dry. Too many yellow leaves mean the plant is wet too often, whereas brown tips to the leaves mean it has been kept too dry. They recover well from drying out occasionally. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs water is by the weight of the container. If the container is heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn't need water, whereas a light pot and limp foliage mean the plant needs some water. Sometimes, water pours out of the container without being retained by the soil. Soaking the dry potting soil in a small dish or saucer can solve this problem. 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 Limelight Dracaena?
Your Dracaena does not require much food for it to remain happy and healthy. We recommend fertilizing your plant once every six months. However, if you want your plant to grow fuller and faster, you can choose to fertilize your plant once every other month. When it comes to the type of fertilizer Limelight Dracaena likes best, any general-purpose houseplant fertilizer works.
What is the best soil for Limelight Dracaena?
Limelight Dracaena plants do best in potting soil that remains slightly moist at all times. A regular potting soil works perfectly with this houseplant. Do your best to keep your plant's soil from drying out so much that it compacts. If your plant's soil becomes compacted, it can be difficult to rehydrate and bring your plant back to life. If the soil is irreversibly compacted, we recommend repotting your plant in fresh potting soil and giving it a thorough watering.
