<b>Dracaena Compacta</b>, also known as Dwarf Dracaena or Janet Craig Compacta, is a popular houseplant known for its easy care, compact size, and attractive foliage. Here are some key information about this plant:
Dracaena Compacta is a slow-growing evergreen shrub that typically reaches a height of about 3 feet (90 cm) when grown as a houseplant. It has a compact, bushy growth habit with dark green, glossy, lance-shaped leaves that grow in a rosette pattern around the stem.
This plant thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can also tolerate low light conditions. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, so it's best to avoid exposing it to direct sun.
Dracaena Compacta prefers evenly moist soil, but does not like to sit in water. Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out before watering, and be sure to drain any excess water from the saucer beneath the pot.
This plant prefers moderate to high humidity, so misting the leaves or placing a humidifier nearby can be beneficial.
Dracaena Compacta prefers temperatures between 60°F-80°F (15°C-27°C), and is sensitive to cold drafts and temperature fluctuations.
A well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter is ideal for this plant.
Feed Dracaena Compacta with a balanced fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season (spring and summer), and reduce feeding frequency during the winter months.
This plant can be propagated through stem cuttings, which should be taken in the spring or early summer and rooted in moist soil or water.
Dracaena Compacta is considered mildly toxic to pets and humans, and can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other symptoms if ingested.
<b>Dracaena Compacta</b> is a low-maintenance and attractive plant that can add a touch of green to any indoor space.
