Dracaena 'Lemon Lime'

Dracaena fragrans ‘Lemon Lime’ is a compacta variety. Very slow growing, but can grow to 3m tall. This variety is a great container plant as it will only grow to about 60cm tall. If you don’t want this plant to grow too tall, prune it at any point on the cane (new leaves will come out) in the early summer.

Planting as a houseplant

From Late Summer TO Early Spring

Most well draining potting soil mix types are fine to use. Temperatures from 60°F (15°C) - 75°F (24°C) are ideal. Under 55°F/12°C is going to harm the plant which may become noticeable if the leaves begin curling. Try and avoid the plant being near cold drafts, which will also cause harm. A good mix of sun shine and shade is ideal for this dracaena, but hardly any direct sunlight. Although it grows quicker and better in bright light you'll also find it survives and grows well enough in low light conditions.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

These are quite easy to propagate from stem tip cuttings, best done in spring or summer. You can also cut a new or old rosette and re-plant it. After replanting keep the soil moist and mist the leaves which will encourage the plant to grow. A tall plant can be propagated using the air layering method.
