How to Care for your Dracaena Reflexa 'Song of India'
Light: Dracaena Reflexas prefer bright indirect light (not direct sun).
Temperature: Ideal temperature is between 65°F (18.3°C) - 85°F (29.4°C). Temperatures below 55°F (12.8°C) can damage the leaves. Avoid cold drafts and heaters.
Water: Like all Dracaenas, the Reflexa should be kept on the dry side. Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering. Over-watering, resulting in root rot, is the main reason this plant dies.
Soil / Fertilizer: Use a loose, quick-draining soil to prevent over-watering and root rot. If your regular soil seems heavy, add some sand.
Humidity: Dracaena Reflexa does well in basic household humidity, but grows faster and leaves look better in higher humidity.
Pruning: Dracaenas are stalk plants so it is natural for bottom leaves to turn yellow and drop off as long as you are getting new growth at the top of the plant. Pruning your plant helps the plant stay bushy and full.
Toxicity: Dracaena is toxic to pets when ingested. If you have a pet, it is highly recommended to keep this plant out of reach.
Additional tip:Dracaenas are effective air purifiers, according to NASA. They've been found to remove volatile organic compounds from the air, increasing the surrounding air quality as well as your productivity and health.
