🌿 Botanical Name: Dracaena 'Red Margined'

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

📏 Size: Dracaena 'Red Margined' typically grows to a height of 2 to 4 feet (60 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 'Red Margined' thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a south- or west-facing window where it can receive filtered sunlight or artificial light. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, it may result in slower growth and less vibrant foliage.

💧 Water: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out between waterings, then water thoroughly until excess water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Reduce watering frequency in the winter months when growth slows down.

💦 Humidity: Dracaena 'Red Margined' 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 'Red Margined' 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 'Red Margined' 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 'Red Margined' 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 'Red Margined' 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 'Red Margined' 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.
