You should place your Dracaena in a space that receives indirect sunlight. Too much direct light can burn the leaves whilst not enough light will result in pale leaves, slow growth, and small new leaves mean it's not getting enough light. You should water your plant when the top half of the soil is dry. Once the soil is dry enough water the plant lightly until the soil is moist to the touch and has begun to drip out of the drainage holes in the pot. As a tropical plant, the Dracaena thrives in a humid environment. This makes the Dracaena an ideal plant for a bathroom or kitchen. If the plant is not in one of these locations, you will find that the leaves are healthier and more vibrant If your regularly mist them. This plant likes to be fed every two weeks in the spring and summer with a well-balanced plant food at half the recommended strength. No food is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any fertilizer.
