Dracaena colorama's are impressive tall trees with multiple canes and hundreds of long, thin, pink leaves trimmed with a white and green variegation. The canes are often thick, twisted, and woody, making them a desirable and expensive “specimen” plant. Dracaena coloramas are easy-care , durable, indoor plants well suited for offices and homes. They are excellent for removing harmful chemicals from the air.
Light: Dracaena coloramas prefer medium light, but survive in low light situations. Lower light slows down the growth rate and reduces the size of new leaves. Direct sun burns the leaves.
Water: Water well and don't water again until the top 50% of the soil is dry. In low light, this could take up to three weeks. Brown tips on the leaves indicate over-watering or too much fluoride or salt in the water. Never use water that has passed through a softener, it is too salty. If your household water has a lot of chemicals, allow it to sit out overnight before using it or use rain water or distilled water. This is a stalk plant, so it is common for the lower leaves to turn yellow and fall off if the plant is getting new leaves at the top. Numerous yellow leaves means the plant needs more water.
