🌿 Botanical Name: Dracaena 'Craigii'

💧 Care Level: Easy. Dracaena 'Craigii' is relatively low-maintenance and adapts well to various growing conditions.

📏 Size: Dracaena 'Craigii' typically grows to a height of 3 to 4 feet (90 to 120 cm) with a spread of 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm), although size may vary depending on growing conditions and care.

☀️ Light: Dracaena 'Craigii' thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a north- or east-facing window where it can receive filtered sunlight or artificial light. While it can tolerate low light conditions, it may grow slower and exhibit less vibrant foliage.

💧 Water: Keep the soil evenly moist during the growing season (spring and summer), but allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Reduce watering frequency in the winter months when growth slows down.

💦 Humidity: Dracaena 'Craigii' prefers moderate humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the leaves regularly, using a humidity tray, or placing the plant in a room with a humidifier.

🌡️ Temperature: Dracaena 'Craigii' prefers temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Protect it from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations, as these can stress the plant.

🌱 Soil: Plant Dracaena 'Craigii' in well-draining, fertile soil. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil is ideal for promoting good drainage and healthy root growth.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Dracaena 'Craigii' with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization frequency in the fall and winter.

🔄 Pruning: Remove any yellowing or dead leaves as needed to maintain the plant's appearance and overall health. Prune back leggy growth to encourage bushier growth.

🌱 Propagation: Dracaena 'Craigii' can be propagated from stem cuttings. Take 4-6 inch (10-15 cm) stem cuttings with at least one node and plant them in moist potting mix. Keep the cuttings warm and humid until new roots develop.
