How to water
Ensure the surface soil dries out between watering, but avoid letting your Lemon Lime dry out completely. Under watering can lead to leaf curling, but over watering can cause the leaf tips to blacken. Water well and allow to fully drain so its roots aren't sitting in water. Do not let the bottom of your bonsai sit in water as this will rot the root system.
The Dracaena Lemon Lime also needs high humidity. If the air isn't humid enough, you'll start to see the leaf edges turn brown. You'll want to regularly mist and provide an extra humidity source if possible.
Looking for a natural way you can create a more humid environment? Why not make a humidity tray. This will create a year round, humid environment that will help your plant thrive:
- Find a non-porous tray
- Fill with pebbles, gravel or stone
- Half fill the tray with water so the top layer of pebbles stays dry. You don't want the bottom of the plant to sit in any water as this will effect its plants roots
- Place your plant on top of the stones and the moisture will evaporate around the plant
Light and Soil Conditions
The Dracaena Lemon Lime will grow well in a bright spot out of direct sunlight or in partial shade. Full sun will burn the leaves, but your plant will need lots of light to keep its vibrant colour.
- Prefers north windows
- For windows to the east and west, keep around 3-4m
- For windows to the south, keep within around 4-5m
- Feed the soil once a month during growing season (March to August) with half diluted, general-purpose fertilizer. Soil should be kept moist, but well draining to prevent water build-up and root rot
- This plant likes neutral soil and you should look to re-pot every couple of years
