Dracaena Janet Craig is an interior workhorse, popular for decades, used frequently as a floor plant in interior situations or mass planted in beds. Survives in low light levels, grows best in filtered light.
Semi-sun to semi-shade; the “compacta” variety is easier to care for, requiring less light and is also slower-growing. These plants do best in bright indirect sunlight from the east/west. They can adapt to lower light levels if the watering is reduced (as it is in winter months).
Keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy, and do not allow the root ball to dry. Provide liquid fertilizer every two weeks in spring and summer. In fall and winter, water less often and do not feed. Mist frequently with warm water, or wipe the leaves with a damp cloth.
Remove any dead leaves. Leaf tips will go brown if the plant is under watered but this browning may be trimmed.
One of the best houseplants tested for removing trichloroethylene. This air purifier should live for decades, if properly cared for.
Each plant is unique and will differ to image supplied.
