Water once a week or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.
Bright indoor light or indirect sun. 6 hours to 8 hours
Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.
Apply liquid fertilizer once in 15 days when the plant is actively growing. For best results use Folikraft ready to use Indoor Plant Food.
“Warneckii” dracaena (Dracaena deremensis “Warneckii”) is a green dracaena cultivar with white stripes along the edges of its leaves. It is a shorter dracaena that matures to a height of only 4 feet tall. While there are quite a few members of the Dracaena family, Warneckii is among the most colorful and easy care. In fact, it makes the list as one of the best indoor house plants for those reasons.
A Dracaena warnekii survives in low light, but grows faster and fuller in medium light. In low light, the new leaves may be smaller and narrower. Direct sun burns the leaves. All dracaena plants like to be kept on the dry side. Water well and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. Never allow the plant to sit in water. The lower the light level the less water a dracaena warnekii needs. All dracaenas are very sensitive to fluoride. If your household water is heavily chlorinated allow it to sit out over night, use water from an outside hose, use rain water or distilled water. Dracaena plants do not require much fertilizer. Use a fast-draining well-aerated loose soil. Dracaena plants can even be grown in soil mixed with lava rock.
