Glauca Cordyline is an attractive, low-maintenance plant. It forms dense, dark-green leaves and makes an ideal centerpiece or feature plant. This plant filters toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene from the atmosphere. Commonly referred to as the “Good Luck Plant”, this plant is a native to Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific Ocean Regions.
Best Locations For Growing Good Luck Plant
This plant grows well both indoors and outdoors, and is hardy in zones 10-12. A warm, sheltered position with well-drained soil would happily suit this plant. It will tolerate some direct morning sun, but the leaves will easily scorch in bright, afternoon sunlight. Glauca Cordyline does well outdoors as long as direct sunlight is avoided and temperatures don't dip below 65 degrees Fahrenheit for long.
Good Luck Plant Sunlight Requirements
This plant does best in well-lit areas, but it will also tolerate partial shade. Avoid long exposure to direct, bright light as this will quickly damage the leaves. Placing it less than 1 foot away from a south-facing window can be beneficial to this plant's health and growth.
Good Luck Plant Care
Browning and withering leaves may be a sign of underwatering. At the same time, make sure that this plant is not in standing water as this will lead to root rot. A potting soil mix of two parts peat moss and one part perlite or sand will be good for this plant. The goal is to create a fast-draining soil. The preferred temperature range for this plant is between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Watering Good Luck Plant
Although it can tolerate dry conditions, it is best to keep the soil damp. Be sure not to let the roots become soggy or sit in standing water. Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry to the touch. During the winter, this plant will require much less water. It does best with captured rain water or filtered tap water.
Feeding Good Luck Plant
This houseplant will benefit from regular fertilizing. This helps maintain the striking, dark-green foliage. A well-balanced liquid fertilizer is more than adequate for this plant’s health. Apply fertilizer once or twice per month during the growing season; during the winter, fertilizer should be withheld.
