The Dracaena Compacta is a striking plant, distinguished by its tightly compacted leaves surrounding its green stem. Its leaves are approximately 5 to 10cm in length, and thin to the touch. Dracaena Compacta are used as indoor plants as they are slow-growing and slow to change their height and shape.
The Dracaena Compacta is a fussy drinker and is often described as being on the dryer end of the watering spectrum. When in moderate light conditions, the plant can be watered every second week. When watering, do so until the point where the water starts to trickle into the drip tray and then stop. The general rule of thumb is the more light the plant receives, the greater the frequency the plant should be watered, and the lower the light, the less the plant should be watered.
