The Dracaena deremensis, also known as the Dracaena Lemon Surprise or Dracaena Lemon Lime is a striking tropical plant, recognizable by its long multi-tone leaves. This plant has earned its place as one of the most common and most loved house plants because of its status of being nearly indestructible, even for someone with a black thumb. When the Dracaena Lemon Surprise plant is unhappy, it will let you know first, rather than immediately dying; should you see some slight discoloration or browning of the leaf tips, it’s the plant’s way of telling you that you are overwatering. Allow the soil to dry completely before you water next and decrease the amount of water from then on.

Dracaenas rely heavily on every part of their leaf to photosynthesize, so dust it often to keep it looking and feeling healthy. Fun fact: Plants from the Dracaena genus are extremely efficient at purifying the air of harmful pollutants, according to the NASA Clean Air Study!

LIGHT: Medium to bright, indirect light, but never direct light or it can be burnt. SOIL: Well-draining, mixed with lava rock or coco coir.

WATER: Once every other week in the Summer and half as much in the Winter but be careful not to oversaturate the soil and drown the roots.

TEMPERATURE: Prefers to stay within 70-75°F though it can withstand anything down to 60°. HUMIDITY: Standard house humidity is fine for this plant, but it will appreciate being misted

every other week.

SAFETY: Toxic to both cats and dogs. Please be mindful before growing around pets or small children.

FERTILIZER: Only necessary once or twice during the growing season from April to October. PROPAGATION: Stem cuttings.

Should I repot my plant once it arrives?

When you receive your plant, it has been growing in it nursery pot for some time.  It is recommended that your repot your plant so that you have the opportunity to inspect the roots. This is a great opportunity to use a cache pot to match your home decor theme.  We offer a variety of cashe pots for sale. 

When repotting it is suggested to repot in the same size as the nursery pot but if your roots are extensive and full you can "pot up" your plant to a size larger which usually means adding an inch to either side of the plant. Be careful while watering them so they don’t hold too much water or their dirt gets too wet.

We you use Noot Rescue Mix, as a recommended soil for indoor houseplants or use a standard potting mix but be more careful about watering instru

When is the time to "pot up" or transfer my plant into a larger pot?

The answer to this is when your water is draining out of the pot completely and never really gets your soil moistened.  It is then that there are likely more roots more soil. Repotting is usually done once in a year or so. 

Make sure to never "pot up" more than an inch on each side and immediately after potting, lightly water your plant.
