Plant Care Tips: Cordyline Mambo
- Cordylines thrive in bright, indirect light, but they can tolerate some shade too.
- Allowing the top of the soil to dry out before waterings will ensure your plant is getting the right amount.
- Don't worry if the lower leaves turn brown. This is natural! The plant needs its bottom leaves to die in order to make room for new growth as it develops.
- Average temperatures from 18ºC to 27ºC are ideal.
- Temperature: Average to warm household temperatures from 18-27.
- The Cordyline Mambo prefers additional humidity. Place it on a tray with wet pebbles and mist it often.
- During the growing season, feed it with a liquid fertiliser once or twice a month.
