Dracenas are among the most common, ornamental, and durable house plants. Most require medium light intensity, but in sunny locations they need protection from summer sun. The soil may be any good potting soil kept evenly moist. In summer use a dilute house plant fertilizer. Ideal temperatures are from 62 to 65 degrees at night and 80 to 85 degrees during the day. As plants age they drop lower leaves. Repotting is done in February or March. Old plants, in large pots, are topdressed rather than repotted.

Propagation may be by stem section cuttings. Thickened underground stems called toes may also be used for propagation.
