Type: Plastic Nursery Pot
Size: 4 Inch Diameter
Light: Provide your Dracaena Compacta with bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light levels but may not thrive as well. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
Temperature: Maintain a comfortable room temperature between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts or temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
Watering: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out before watering. Water your Dracaena Compacta thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains from the pot. Empty the saucer beneath the pot to prevent waterlogged soil, which can lead to root rot. Reduce watering during the winter months when growth slows.
Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix for tropical plants or a blend of potting soil, perlite, and peat moss can work well.
Fertilization: Feed your Dracaena Compacta with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter).
Pruning: Prune your plant to remove any dead or yellowing leaves. This promotes a neat appearance and encourages new growth.
Repotting: Repot your Dracaena Compacta when it becomes root-bound or outgrows its container, typically every 2-3 years. Choose a slightly larger pot with proper drainage.
Pests: Dracaena Compactum is generally pest-resistant, but it can occasionally attract common houseplant pests like spider mites or mealybugs. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
Cleaning: Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth periodically to remove dust and keep the foliage looking vibrant.
