Colorama Dracaena is an excellent first houseplant for the new gardener. It is straightforward to care for and tolerant of a wide range of humidity and light levels. The multi-colored leaves of Colorama are flashy and add interest to any indoor plantscape. Colorama Dracaena is also known by the name Dragon Tree and is native to the island of Madagascar. While Colorama is typically considered a houseplant, in the warmest USDA zones of 10-12, Dracaena is grown outdoors as a small tree that can grow to be 15-20 feet high.

Light: Indirect bright light is ideal for Colorama. The plant will retain its vividly colored leaves and grow moderately fast in higher-light levels. Lower light is also acceptable and does not affect the growth rate much. Moving Colorama Dracaena outdoors for the summer results in denser leaf growth. Place Colorama in a semi-shaded protected spot so that the direct sun of midday does not bleach the leaves.

Watering: Water Colorama once weekly when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry. Empty any excess water from saucers and cache pots, so the plant does not sit in water for long. Humidity levels are not crucial for Dracaena. Colorama thrives in an average humidity of 30-40%, although it will drop leaves if placed in front of air conditioning or heating vents.
