Grow Colorful and Unique Dracaenas Indoors

Improve indoor air quality and invigorate your décor with some of the unique dracaena varieties.

Corn plant, Madagascar dragon tree, lucky bamboo and Song of India are popular varieties of the dracaena. Update your collection with a few less common varieties.  Mass Appeal is a corn plant with twisted stems and improved drought tolerance.

Rikki is another easy to grow variety with dark green leaves and light green variegation in the center. Add color with Limelight’s bright chartreuse leaves or the chartreuse and gray-green leaves of Lemon Lime. Add a twist with the curled green, chartreuse and white leaves of Lemon Surprise.

Grow dracaenas in high or medium light for the best color.  Water plants thoroughly and often enough to keep the soil slightly moist. Dry soil and low humidity can cause leaf tips to brown. Just trim off the brown tips and adjust your watering as needed.

A bit more information:  Dracaenas are related to asparagus, snake plant and cordylines. Keep them out of the reach of dogs and cats as they can cause vomiting, and other symptoms if ingested.
