10" Dracaena Warneckei Cane
information: This is another fine example of the
outstanding quality that is common to Hawaiian grown plants. All
Hawaiian plants are grown in their native soil... lava rock. This
makes it difficult to probe the soil with your fingers to check
for watering. There's also a great advantage to lava rock... it's
hard to over water a Hawaiian plant.
Depending on your lighting and indoor temperatures... your
plant will most likely need watered once a week. Give your plant
just enough water so a bit runs out the drain holes. Dracaena's
don't require much fertilizer... in fact it can hinder their
growth an spot their foliage. At the very most only feed your
Dracaena once a year when you notice your plant is growing.
Warneckei is available in many sizes and forms... but you'll only
find the Hawaiian Warneckei's at your local garden center.
