Dracaena Dorado


Botanical name: Dracaena 'Dorado'

Dracaena ‘Dorado’ is a lush plant with striking green leaves edged in yellow. It grows in low to medium light and helps to purify indoor air.

Sunlight: Your Dracaena prefers bright indirect light but can adapt to low light. Too much direct sunlight can burn and bleach the leaves.

Watering: Water when the top 50%-75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

Look out for a common problem called ‘tipping’ when the tips of the leaves dry out and turn brown. The most common cause is tap water, which contains salts, chlorine, fluoride, and other elements that may be harmful in excess. To prevent this, you can use distilled water or rain water. Wipe the leaves with a soft damp cloth to remove dust as necessary. Take care to clean the undersides of the leaves as well as the upper surfaces. Removing dust opens the pores so your plant can exchange air freely, and it helps prevent pests from taking up residency.
