Native to Africa, Janet Craig Dracaena is a low-light workhorse that sports shiny, wide, dark-green leaves with wavy margins; the leaves reach up to 2 ft long! Easily adaptable to a wide range of environments, Janet Craig Dracaena is a favorite low-maintenance houseplant. 

Best Locations For Growing Janet Craig Dracaena

This is a great plant to place on the floor due to its mature height. This plant performs best in room temperatures ranging from 65 - 90 degrees F.  Avoid placing it near cold drafts and in room temperatures below 55 degrees. 

Janet Craig Dracaena Sunlight Requirements

Janet Craig prefers filtered indirect light but will grow in lower light levels. Be sure to avoid direct sunlight. 

Janet Craig Dracaena Care

Plant this Dracaena in a well-draining potting mix that contains sand, peat, or pine bark, but avoid a potting mix with perlite as Dracaenas are sensitive to it. Janet Craig Dracaena is not a fan of really hot temperatures; if it's placed in an environment with temperatures over 90 degrees F for an extended period, its leaves may begin to discolor. Give the plant leaves a light dusting from time to time to keep the foliage clean. Trim any brown tips and leaf edges off using sharp, clean scissors, following the natural contour of the leaf. 

Watering Janet Craig Dracaena

Use distilled or rainwater to water your plant, or allow for tap water to sit for 24 hours before watering to allow chemicals to dissipate. Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out in between waterings as this plant is not a fan of soggy soils. Janet Craig Dracaena will appreciate a light misting of its leaves and soil.  

Feeding Janet Craig Dracaena

You will not need to regularly fertilize Janet Craig; Dracaena plants are sensitive to fertilizer salt buildup.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
