Plant Care:

  • Repotting: You’ll want to repot your Janet Craig when it becomes root bound, typically every two to three years, give or take. You should only move it to a pot that’s one size larger than its existing pot.During a potting change, you can refresh your plant’s old soil with a new loose potting mix with good drainage to freshen up your dragon tree plant each year.

    After you’ve repotted the plant, water it thoroughly.

  • Soil: For Janet Craig, a loose potting mix with good drainage is a suitable choice. Use one part compost, one part perlite, and one part peat moss if you make your own. Keep in mind that deremensis “Janet Craig” prefers a relatively dry growth medium, and your soil should accommodate this.
  • Water Needs: Less is more for Dracaena Janet Craig. You should only be watering when 1/3 or even 1/2 of the pot is dry. This means you’re watering about every week and a half or two. Overwatering is a common cause of root rot, which can be deadly.The Dracaena Janet Craig plant also dislikes tap water, which can contain fluoride and chlorine.

    In a perfect world, use rainwater to hydrate your plant. That said, I realize rainwater isn’t readily available for every indoor grower, so filtered water or distilled water are also good options.

    You should never have soggy soil or wet soil for this plant. Again, take a chill pill on the watering. A little water goes a long way in making an attractive Dracaena plant.

    As previously stated, drainage holes and suitable soil are essential for Dracaena deremensis “Janet Craig”. You don’t want it to sit in water for an extended amount of time.
