1 Answer 1


This used to be called Dracenae demerensis 'Janet Craig' but has now been reclassified as a cultivar of Dracaena fragrans. Members of this family:

  • are sensitive to chlorine in city tap water
  • respond well to being cut back
  • happiest in bright diffused light
  • respond to overwatering by getting brown spots on the leaves.
  • the oldest specimens I saw were potted up with a good proportion of clay
  • Clay in pot? So this plants require good water and good light? How tolerant it is to winter? Can it survive around 6 C in winter?

    @4-K You can try using up to 50% clay based soil if available. Bake first to sterilize and remove any pathogens. These are tropical plants and will not do well at 6 deg C. I would not keep these plants below ~ 15 Deg C
