A tropical look, easy care and an air purifier. The Dracaena Lemon Lime has it all! This cool houseplant is native to Africa, Central America and Asia. The climate in these areas is quite harsh for plants, but that does mean that the Dracaena can take a beating and is therefore easy to care for. In the Netherlands, this plant is also known as the Dragon Blood Tree, thanks to the red resin that flows from the plant when a cut is made in the stem or leaves. This houseplant filters polluted particles from the air and creates a healthier environment. The Dracaena requires little maintenance. It is the ideal plant for the home or office. This Dracaena is characterized by its pointed, light green leaves with a dark stripe.
The Dracaena does very well in a spot in the (semi-) shade. Also this plant does not need a lot of water. Only water the plant when the soil feels dry. Too much water can cause root rot. This can be recognized by the leaves; brown spots with yellow edges will appear here. Should this happen, it is advised to give less water and remove the brown leaves. When the plant is wet for a longer period, the roots may rot and then it is difficult to save the plant. In winter, the plant needs even less water than in summer. When in doubt, rather water a little too little than too much. Pruning is not necessary, but can be done in the fall to keep the plant compact.
Upon delivery, the plant has a height of 60 to 70cm (measured incl. pot). The plant is delivered in pot with a diameter/diameter of 17cm.
