The Dracaena genus has provided some of the sturdiest houseplants available today, including the every-popular D. deremensis. These plants, which are native to Africa, have been used as houseplants since at least the mid-19th century and are still popular because they possess the single most important quality in a house plant: they’re pretty and fairly hard to kill.

Light: Low light is fine, but they like it a little brighter. New leaves will narrow if there isn’t enough light.

Water: Keep evenly moist, although if you have to err, do so on the dry side. (But keeping it too dry will result in brown leaf tips.) Use non-fluoridated water as they are sensitive to fluoride.

Temperature: Keep above 50ºF if possible. They do best in the mid-70ºs to low 80ºs.
