Air Purifying and Thrive in Low Light

Plant Care Tips
Light: Dracaena JCCs love bright to medium indirect light. Keep out of direct sun, as the leaves can easily burn.
Water: Water every two weeks when the top 5 cm of soil becomes dry. Water thoroughly and get rid of excess water, as soggy soil can lead to root rot.
Drafts: They might be easy, but they don’t like it breezy! Dracaena JCC doesn’t fare well with drafts. Keep them in a sheltered location.
Repotting: Repot every 12-18 months, upscaling 5cm larger in diameter each time.
Maintaining: To keep them in their best shape, remove dried or damaged leaves. Do this by firmly grasping the leaf at its base and gently tug.
