💧 Care Level: Easy. Dracaena 'Song of India' is relatively low-maintenance and adapts well to indoor environments.

📏 Size: Dracaena 'Song of India' typically grows to a height of 3 to 6 feet (90 to 180 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 'Song of India' 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.

🌱 Soil: Plant Dracaena 'Song of India' 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 'Song of India' 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.
