    About Janet Craig (Dracaena deremensis)

    Care Instructions

    Light Requirements:

    Janet Craig plants thrive in low to medium indirect light. They can tolerate lower light conditions but grow best with bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

    Water Requirements:

    Water the plant thoroughly when the top 3cm of soil feels dry. Be careful not to overwater, as Dracaena deremensis is susceptible to root rot. Reduce watering frequency in the winter months.

    Soil Requirements:

    Use a well-draining potting mix. A standard potting soil with added perlite or sand improves drainage for this plant.

    Humidity:

    Janet Craig plants prefer average indoor humidity levels. They can tolerate lower humidity but will thrive with occasional misting or by placing a humidifier nearby.

    Pro Tip

    Janet Craig plants can be sensitive to fluoride, which can cause brown leaf tips. Use distilled or filtered water to prevent this issue.
