🌿 Botanical Name: Dracaena Elegance (Dracaena deremensis 'Janet Craig')

💧 Care Level: Easy. Dracaena Elegance is relatively low-maintenance and adapts well to indoor environments.

📏 Size: Dracaena Elegance typically grows to a height of 3 to 6 feet (90 to 180 cm) with a spread of 1 to 3 feet (30 to 90 cm), although size may vary depending on growing conditions and care.

☀️ Light: Dracaena Elegance thrives in moderate to 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 result in slower growth and less vibrant foliage.

💧 Water: Keep the soil evenly moist during the growing season (spring and summer), but avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Water Dracaena Elegance when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch, and allow excess water to drain away freely.

💦 Humidity: Dracaena Elegance 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, especially during dry indoor conditions.

🌡️ Temperature: Dracaena Elegance 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.

❄️ Hardiness: Dracaena Elegance is best grown indoors in most climates. It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

🌱 Soil: Plant Dracaena Elegance in well-draining, peat-based potting mix with added perlite or sand for improved drainage. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Dracaena Elegance 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 damaged leaves as needed to maintain the plant's appearance and overall health. Prune back leggy growth to encourage a bushier habit.

🌱 Propagation: Dracaena Elegance 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.
