Dracaena grow best in high indirect light.  But can also do well in low lighted areas.  When watering wait till the top of the soil is dry and avoid watering with cold water.


Since Dracaena plants can grow very tall, pruning is recommended to keep the plant at a manageable level.  Any yellow or brown leaves should be removed.  The stalk of the plant is known as the cane and can be cut to any height level you prefer.


Dracaena can be propagated through cuttings.  When pruning, any of the cane cuttings can be stuck into the another pot with soil and roots will form.  If you like, you can even dip one end of the cane into a rooting liquid purchased from the local garden shop.
