Approximately 0.33 to 0.5 liter of water once a week in spring and summer, every 10 days to 2 weeks in fall and winter.

Care Guide

To water your plant, use water at room temperature and whose chlorine has evaporated. Let the soil dry between 2 waterings on the surface on 3-5cm. Remove the decorative moss beforehand to avoid wetting it. Water in 2 times spaced of about 10 minutes so that the soil absorbs water well. Remove the stagnant water at the bottom of the planter. Spray the foliage of your plant regularly to increase the humidity level. Clean the foliage once a month with a soft cloth and diluted black soap to optimize photosynthesis and limit the risk of pests. Rotate the pot a quarter of a circle at this time to promote harmonious growth. Apply a suitable fertilizer once a month from March to September.

Questions about the Dracaena Fragrans Compacta

Does Dracaena Fragrans Compacta purify the air?

Dracaena Compactas are powerful air purifiers, removing pollutants such as formaldehyde, xylene and nitrogen oxides from the air while converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.

Is Dracaena Fragrans Compacta toxic or poisonous to humans or pets?

The Dracaena Compacta is considered to be toxic, and care should be taken around pets. Consumption can result in illness.

How big can a Dracaena Fragrans Compacta grow?

Dracaena Compacta can grow up to 2 meters tall indoors. A real indoor tree! However, after reception, its size will be significantly constant.

Does Dracaena Compacta need a lot of sun?

Dracaena Compacta is the perfect houseplant! It needs medium indirect sunlight to thrive. This tropical plant can adapt to a darker environment, but remember to reduce watering to avoid black spots appearing on its leaves. Avoid full sun to avoid burning the foliage.

Is Dracaena Fragrans Compacta easy to care for?

Dracaena Fragrans Compacta is a very easy-care houseplant.

Choose moderate watering. You can leave the substrate to dry out between waterings. It's a perfect plant for people who are away from home regularly or who forget to water their plants from time to time.

Is Dracaena Fragrans Compacta prone to disease and parasites?

Few pests attack this houseplant. However, if the air is too dry, aphids and mealybugs may appear. Yellowing leaves may indicate the presence of red spiders. In this case, remove the pests with Super Neem Oil solution and a soft cloth, and spray the foliage more regularly to increase atmospheric humidity. If the potting soil seems infected, consider repotting your plant.

Gray spots on the foliage may be a sign of fungus infestation. Make sure you don't over-water your plant and treat it with the Essential Plant Repair Care Pack. If roots are affected by rot, consider renewing the substrate by repotting.

Does Dracaena Fragrans Compacta produce flowers and fruit?

Yes, this jewel of nature is capable of flowering. However, don't be impatient; this graceful plant often takes several years to reach full floral maturity, especially indoors.

Its name, "Fragrans," is no mere coquetry: it's a true olfactory description. When they deign to make their appearance, the flowers are immaculately white and give off an intoxicating fragrance, a subtle blend of vanilla, ylang-ylang, with a hint of lily of the valley and hyacinth. A veritable olfactory bouquet!

As for fruit, forget the idea of a personal orchard. The chances of this shrub producing its bright orange fruit in our interiors are as likely as winning the lottery.

What is the moisture meter and how does it work?

All large and extra large plant sets will include a sleek, innovative moisture meter that will tell you when it’s time to water. 

This moisture meter does not require batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = no need to water, white = time to water. To use, gently insert as deep as possible into your plant’s soil, taking care not to damage any roots. Wait 20-30 minutes to read. If the window is completely white, water your plant as instructed on your care card. If the window is blue, hold off on watering until it turns completely white. Wait a couple of days before watering, the moisture meter should not be constantly bright blue.

After 9 months it will be time to replace the moister meter stick.

Please note that Léon & George does not take responsibility for damage caused by incorrect or forceful use of the moisture meter. 

Will the plant I receive be exactly like the one in the photo on your site?

Of course, no two plants look the same. Although we do our best to offer you a plant that looks as much as possible as the photos, there will always be variations, which is what makes each plant unique!

What is the 30-day plant guarantee all about?
