Plant Features

The Dracaena Florida Beauty is a striking ornamental plant known for its lush foliage and variegated leaves. The leaves are often a mix of green, white, and sometimes yellow, with spots and streaks creating a mosaic-like pattern. This variety of Dracaena is appreciated for its ability to purify indoor air and its relatively low maintenance needs compared to more finicky houseplants.

In troubleshooting Dracaena Florida Beauty, it's important to look out for browning leaf tips, which can be a sign of fluoride or chlorine in tap water, or low humidity. Yellowing and wilting leaves might indicate overwatering or poor drainage. Dracaenas are sensitive to over-fertilization, so if you notice a white crust on the soil surface, it could be an excess of mineral salts from fertilizer. Dust can accumulate on the broad leaves, so wipe them with a damp cloth regularly to keep them healthy and efficient at air purification. Pests to watch out for include mealybugs and spider mites.
