Plant Features

The Lemon Surprise Dracaena is a vibrant and attractive houseplant known for its striking foliage and ease of care. It is a variant of the Dracaena fragrans and features narrow, arching leaves with a bright green color and yellow to cream variegation. The leaves often have a slight twist or curl, which adds to the plant's unique appearance. This plant is well-suited for adding a pop of color to indoor spaces and is also known for its air-purifying qualities.

When troubleshooting the Lemon Surprise Dracaena, common issues include brown leaf tips, which can be a sign of fluoride or chlorine in tap water, or low humidity. Yellowing leaves might indicate overwatering or poor drainage. If the plant is not producing new leaves or the leaves are smaller than usual, it might not be receiving enough light. It's important to wipe down the leaves regularly to allow the plant to photosynthesize efficiently and to check for pests like mealybugs and spider mites.
