Your Dracaena Rikki will do well in medium to bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can burn the leaves. Water your plant thoroughly and allow the top 75% of the soil to dry before watering again. In lower light, allow the soil to dry completely before watering. Your Dracaena Rikki will benefit from regular misting, especially in the winter when the air is dry. Will thrive in average room temperatures, between 60–80 degrees.
Wipe the leaves with a soft damp cloth to remove dust as necessary.
Look out for a common problem called ‘tipping,’ when the tips of the leaves dry out and turn brown. This can be caused by a variety of issues like overwatering or fertilizer burn. The most common cause is tap water, which contains salts, chlorine, fluoride, and other elements that may be harmful if built up in the soil. If you do not have a filtration system, leaving the tap water in an open container overnight before watering can help remove some of the chlorine and fluoride or you can use rainwater.
Moderately toxic to pets.
