For dracaena preferably light but no direct sunlight location or scattered light (most dracaena better developed on the windows facing west and east). Types of dracaena with dark green leaves tolerate considerable shade, but variegated dratsenoy needs bright light (or the leaves lose their original color and turn green).
Optimum temperature dracaena content during the year is in the range 18-25 degrees; variegated forms dracaena love the heat, and the rest tolerate a decrease in temperature in winter to 10-13 degrees. Dracaena watering should be moderate and regular (more abundant in summer, in winter rare) - it is important to avoid over-watering or drying of the substrate, or quickly rot the roots and the leaves are falling, the plant may die.
Excess water from the tray after watering should be removed. Dracaena like moist air and frequent spraying; Thoroughly rinse the dust collected on the leaves, allows you to "shower". Water for irrigation and spraying must be well-settled (possibly filtered); in the presence of fluoride in it very sensitive to them dracaena develops necrosis (non-spotting). Dracaena not tolerate spray glitter leaves.
From April to September dratsenoy requires fertilizer 2 times a month. Every two years, dracaena transplanted (spring or summer) in the substrate of a mixture of turf, leaf, compost soil, peat and sand in equal parts; potted one must have drainage holes and good drainage.
Dracaena can be cut. All dracaena propagated vegetatively - apical cuttings, which are at a temperature of 20-22 degrees perpetuate in moist sand under glass for 2-3 weeks. It is also possible reproduction dracaena (as dieffenbachia, yucca, Philodendron) stem cuttings (placing them in pots vertically or horizontally stacking) if stalk stem has at least one eye. Vegetative reproduction dracaena can be carried out all year round, but in the spring and summer there is an active rooting.
Drakensberg dracaena breeds more and seeds. Wrong watering dracaena is the cause drying tops of the leaves; of dry air turn brown leaf edges. Also, when very dry air in the heating season in the winter and in the summer heat increases the probability of hitting dracaena pests: scale insects, mealybugs, spider mites.
