Caring for your Dracaena fragrans
Dracaena fragrans, also known as corn plant or cornstalk dracaena, is a popular houseplant that is relatively easy to care for. Here are some tips for caring for a Dracaena fragrans:
Dracaena fragrans prefers bright, indirect light, but can also tolerate low light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.
Water your Dracaena fragrans when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. It’s better to underwater than overwater.
Dracaena fragrans prefers moderate to high humidity. You can increase the humidity by misting the leaves regularly or placing a tray of water near the plant.
Dracaena fragrans prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid placing the plant near drafts or in temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
You can fertilize your Dracaena fragrans once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.
Prune your Dracaena fragrans to control its size and shape. You can also remove any yellow or brown leaves to keep the plant looking healthy.
