Tips For Care

This plant can be a perennial in zones 9-11 and reach 2-3 feet tall. In zones 3-8 it is an outdoor annual only, however you can bring this plant into your greenhouse, enclosed patio free from frost or even indoors as an exotic houseplant!

This unique and very hardy plant can be grown at any light level, tolerating both full sun to partial shade.

Dracaena Spikes fairly drought tolerant too! Once young plants are established, they require little water, however for best results be sure to water weekly when in full sun. Plant in any well-drained soil.

Feed bi-weekly if planted in a container with other plants. If your Dracaena spikes are in their own pot, feed it monthly with a balanced plant food while actively growing. We recommend using a houseplant fertilizer or Dr. Earth Exotic Blend Fertilizer for the best results.
