A cultivar of Red Edge Dracaena with dark magenta edges to the leaves.
moderate to bright, may lose some coloration in lower light conditions
evenly moist to approach dryness
The rosette of leaves is found on the top of this apical dominant plant. They are long, linear, and have a dark magenta edge.
thin and flexible
If the plant gets tall and out of shape it will respond to being cut back almost any where along the stem. This plant is very apical dominant, meaning it produces one major top. When it is cut back it will respond with multiple branches.
The major ways are tip cuttings, cane (stem section cuttings) cuttings or air layering. Sections of the stem can be cut into 4-6" pieces and either stuck vertically or laid on the growing media horizontally and they will root.
Notes & Reference
This plant is sold in a few different ways. Many times small plants are sold as "leafy rosettes". A tip cutting is rooted in a small pot. As the plant matures it will developed its palm-like form. Many times it is sold as a single, "bare legged" plant. Some times 3 or more cuttings of various heights are put in the same pot to create a layered effect.
