Your Dracaena Limelight does best in low to indirect bright light. Direct sunlight can cause the lime color to fade and can even scorch the leaves.
Water when the top 75% of the soil is dry. Always water thoroughly and discard excess water in the sauce to avoid root rot. Overwatering causes root rot and is the most common reason a Dracaena plant dies.
Your Dracaena will do well in average household humidity.
Your Dracaena Limelight prefers temperatures between 60-85 degrees.
The Dracaena Limelight is slow-growing and does not need much fertilizer. Feed once a month in the spring and summer with an all-purpose plant food, diluted to half-strength. No fertilizer is necessary during the fall and winter when plant growth naturally slows. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any fertilizer.
Dracaena Limelight leaves are toxic to pets and humans if ingested.
Look out for a common problem called ‘tipping’ when the tips of the leaves dry out and turn brown. This can be caused by a variety of issues like overwatering, too much fertilizer, etc. The most common cause is tap water, which contains salts, chlorine, and fluoride. If you do not have a filtration system, leaving the tap water in an open container overnight before watering can help remove some of the chlorine and fluoride or use rainwater.
