The Dracaena Lemon Lime Plant, native to Africa, is a very close relative of the Dracaena Warnekii (green and white striped leaves) and the Dracaena Janet Craig (solid green leaves). The Dracaena Lemon Lime has 12”-24” long sword shaped leaves with bright green and yellow stripes. Like other Dracaena plants, the leaves of a Dracaena Lemon Lime are arranged in a rosette and grow off a very thick stem. A Dracaena Lemon Lime is very easy to care for and can easily reach a height of 5-7ft. indoors. It also makes a beautiful bush. Because of the bright colours in the leaves, a Dracaena Lemon Lime needs a little more light than other Dracaenas. It’s a great plant to brighten up any room in your house.
LIGHT CONDITIONS: Although a Dracaena Lemon Lime Plant can adapt to low light, it does better in medium to indirect bright light. Too much direct bright light causes the colour in the leaves of a Dracaena Lemon Lime to fade. Too little light and the new leaves of a Dracaena Lemon Lime Plant are narrower than the older leaves.
WATER CONDITIONS: Allow the top 50% of the soil of a Dracaena Lemon Lime plant to dry out before watering. If the soil is too wet or too dry the leaves of a Dracaena Lemon Lime plant develop brown tips. Always use non-fluoridated water for any type of Dracaena Plant. Dracaenas are very sensitive to chemicals in the water.
