Plant Care Tips: Cordyline "Glauca"
- Find your plant a spot in a bright room away from direct sunlight. They can also tolerate lower light conditions but this may slow their growing process.
- These Cordylines don't need a lot of water. Check that the top of the soil has dried out (about an inch below the surface) between waterings.
- To water plants properly, take the plant out of its decorative pot and give it a drink in the sink, allowing the water to drain completely before returning the plant to its pot. You should never let this plant dry out completely or sit in water.
- You can mist your plants every week to maintain humidity levels and don't panic if you notice the older leaves turning brown, this is part of the normal growing process. Feel free to remove them to keep your plant looking tidy.
- Cordylines prefer mild temperatures, ideally between 15 and 25ºC
- Every Spring, check if the plant has become root bound, if so, it’s time to reppot it. Use a rich, well-draining soil mix.
- During the warmer months, feed it once a month with weak liquid fertiliser.
