How to plant the Dracaena in a pot?
This houseplant is delivered in a standard growers pot. It’s best for the growth of the Dracaena to plant it in a decorative planter. Select a pot that is at least 20 percent larger than the growers pot.
Cover the bottom of the decorative planter with a layer of potting soil. Does the decorative pot have a hole? Then start with a layer of hydro grains, so the water can drain away. The Dracaena should be 1 to 2 cm below the rim. Remove the growers pot and place the plant in the middle of the decorative pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it down slightly.

How do I take care of Dracaena?
For best growth, water the Dracaena weekly. Dissolve a little green plant fertiliser in the irrigation water every second week. In summer, it may be necessary to water twice a week, only when the soil feels dry. The Dracaena needs a rest period in November and December. Then water less and don't fertilise.
Good air humidity of 60 to 70 percent is also important. Otherwise, the leaf edges may dry out. When the air is dry, spray the leaves once or twice a day. The Dracaena enjoys a light spot with morning or evening sun.
