Dracaena Sanderiana Gold

Posted on by

Dracaena sanderiana ‘Gold’ is commonly known as Gold Ribbon Dracaena for its striking lance-like leaves that have deep green stripes with prominent gold edges.

This plant prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light conditions. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves. When placed in low light, the plant may grow more slowly and the variegation on the leaves may become less pronounced.

This plant is relatively drought-tolerant and prefers to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s crucial to ensure the soil is well-draining. It prefers moderate humidity levels but can tolerate lower humidity. During winter, avoid placing the plant near cold drafts or heating vents.

Feed Dracaena sanderiana ‘Gold’ with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every month during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding frequency in the fall and winter when the plant’s growth slows down.
