Delivery: For local pick up at our Kings Cross Store we have a delivery parking zone just opposite our store. We will deliver to local homes if this is something you would like let us know on check out.
Availability: Due to us needing to order from the growers, it may take more than 1 week to get the tree in stock.
LIGHT: Requires moderate to bright light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight. The lower the light source the thinner the leaves will be.
WATERING: Allow top 2″to 3″ of soil to dry out in between watering, but keep moist but not wet. When you do water let the water drain out of the base and pour out any excess from the pot tray. Avoid your plant sitting in water to prevent root rot.
FEEDING: Use a good plant feed every 6 months or so, this plant does not need too much feed however.
TEMPERATURE: Room temperature from 15 degrees to 26 degrees. Avoid placing plants directly next to your radiators or air conditioning units.
HUMIDITY: Draceana will like a good spray misting weekly. If too dry the leaves will turn brown on the edge.
DISEASES: Prevent diseases such as root rot by not over watering your plant, allow to dry out in between watering and keep your plant in a well ventilated spot. The sign of root rot usually shows as brown spots appearing on the leaves. To avoid this ensure your decorative pot has some clay pebbles or small stones in the base to act as a reservoir. When you water it the bottom of the inner plastic pot should never sit in a pool of water, this causes root rot.
ADDITIONAL CARE: As your tree grows tall, just cut off a few centimetres from the top of the main stem. This will encourage the lower parts to bush out. Take the cutting and place into potting soil and it should take root into a new plant.
