Watering and Fertilization
Once established, the dracaena is quite drought-tolerant, but it will thrive with at least a moderate amount of water. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soaked, watering once or twice a week during dry periods in the spring and summer. This plant does not require much fertilizer. Two applications of slow-release fertilizer, marked 10-10-10 or 8-8-8, in early spring and again in the summer will encourage just the right amount of growth.
