Dracaena Reflexa

$30

Dracaena Reflexa, also known as Song of India or pleomele, is a tree native to islands in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar. It has striking alternating dark green and chartreuse stripes on narrow-lanceolate leaves with veins that run parallel along their length. These leaves are in a whorled arrangement and will gradually die off revealing a stem with an interesting pattern.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
They thrive in medium to bright indirect light, but will also do well in low light conditions. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window.
They like the soil to be dry between watering, but not completely dry. That usually takes about one to two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water like floppy, droop, or soft leaves.
They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist every few days.
Avoid allowing the soil to dry completely. Be sure to water slowly near the base of the plant as Dracaena have shallow roots. Place your plant away from hot or cold air drafts.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
