Dracaena Janet Craig Description

Dracaena 'Janet Craig' has broad, glossy leaves that grow compactly from a central stalk, creating a dense, bushy appearance. The leaves are long and arch slightly, creating an elegant profile. This plant is relatively low-maintenance and can grow up to 10 feet tall in ideal indoor conditions, but it is typically kept much smaller through regular pruning.

Care Plan for Dracaena Janet Craig

Light: Dracaena 'Janet Craig' is extremely adaptable in terms of light requirements. It thrives in low to medium light but can also tolerate bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. This adaptability makes it well-suited for locations away from windows or in rooms with limited natural light.

Watering: Water this plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. It's important not to overwater, as Dracaena 'Janet Craig' is susceptible to root rot if the soil is kept too moist. Ensure the pot has good drainage and water less frequently during the winter months when the plant's growth slows down.

Humidity: Average household humidity is adequate for Dracaena 'Janet Craig', but it will appreciate increased humidity, especially in dry environments. Misting the plant occasionally or using a pebble tray can help maintain an ideal humidity level.

Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Avoid exposure to drafts and sudden temperature changes, as Dracaena 'Janet Craig' can be sensitive to cold drafts.

Child and Pet Safety: Like many Dracaena species, 'Janet Craig' is toxic to pets if ingested. It can cause vomiting (often with blood), excessive drooling, and weight loss in cats and dogs due to the saponins it contains. It is generally considered non-toxic to humans but should still be kept out of reach of small children.

General Tips: Fertilize every two months during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Regularly dust the leaves to keep the plant looking vibrant and healthy. Prune as needed to control size and shape.
