General Overview: Growth happens from a central stem or trunk.  As new leaves emerge, older leaves will die off (this is a normal part of it’s life cycle).

Light Requirements:  Dracaenas can be placed in low-light environments - but will produce more growth (more leaves and get taller) and greater contrast in variegation if given brighter indirect light.  However, too much direct sunlight may cause leaves to become bleached and fade in color.

Water Requirements:  Safer to stay on the dry side - Keep the soil barely moist and the roots well aerated! Repot when you notice roots peeking through the soil’s surface.

Other Notes: Dracaenas are among some of the longest lasting plants! Cut growth back on the main stem and 2-3 new stems will emerge from the main trunk.
