Watering
Dracaena is a relatively drought-tolerant plant and adoesn’t appreciate soggy soil. Water only when the soil feels slightly dry, and then water generously, using tepid water, until water trickles through the drainage holes. Empty the drainage saucer after about an hour and never allow the pot to stand in water. Too little water is better than too much, but don’t allow the soil to become bone dry. Usually, watering approximately once a week is adequate. Dracaena benefits from a light misting two or three times per week when the air is dry, especially during the winter. Misting also helps to keep the foliage clean and free of dust.
