Dracaena 'Colorama' is an increasingly popular houseplant among beginners and experts alike. Because of its vibrant leaves, this houseplant is a superb way to brighten up your home while being rather low-maintenance. Dracaenas grow well at average room temperatures but don't like cold drafts. Give plants medium to bright direct sunlight to maintain the best leaf color. Allow the soil to dry to the touch between watering.  This plant is a cultivar of Dracaena marginata, also known as the Madagascar Dragon Tree.  It is an evergreen perennial native to Madagascar, Mauritius, and Mozambique, commonly grown for its richly colored foliage. According to the NASA Clean Air Study, Dracaena marginata 'Colorama' can remove volatile pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene from the air.

Care Guide

This plant is used to receiving dappled sunlight in its native habitat. The ideal location for growing your plant indoors is in a room with eastern or western exposure, preferably 2-3 feet (60-90 cm) away from the window. By providing it with the right amount of sunlight, you will also ensure that the foliage maintains its vibrant coloring. Dracaena Colorama can be grown at the average room temperature. If you want to plant it outdoors, you can do so in USDA zones 9 to 11. It is not frost-hardy and can lose all its leaves if you keep it outside in the cold for extended periods. On average, you will need to be water once a week from spring until mid-autumn. We recommend allowing the soil to slightly dry out in between watering to a depth of around 2 inches (5 cm). The Dracaena Colorama is very sensitive to fluoride in tap water, which can cause yellowing and crispy leaf tips. Once the foliage is damaged by fluoride, it will not recover. Keeping the water in an open container overnight will get rid of chlorine, but not fluoride. As a result, we recommend either distilled water or rainwater for this plant.
