This tough plant, recognised by its attractive, strappy foliage, is available in a number of varieties that reach mature heights of 2 - 10 ft.
Dracaena can survive in low or medium light, but the leaves will look their best in bright, indirect sun.
As with most houseplants, the biggest danger is root rot from overwatering and/or lack of drainage. To prevent this, plant in a pot with drain holes, in standard well-draining potting mix and allow to dry slightly between waterings. Water less often in autumn and winter than during the growing seasons of spring and summer. Fertilise monthly during the spring and summer with standard liquid plant food.
