Dracaena ‘Lemon Surprise’ - Common Problems

The young leaves are shedding and falling: This could be a sign of underwatering and lack of light. If this is the case, move your plant to a brighter location and change your watering routine. If the old leaves are shedding and falling, don’t be alarmed. This is a natural process that happens due to maturity.

The tips of the leaves are turning yellow and brown: Dracaenas can be sensitive to tap water. If this continues, switch to using distilled water, rainwater, or set a glass of water out overnight to reduce the chlorine content. Ensure your watering routine is consistent.

How often should I fertilize my Dracaena: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests: Scale, spider mites, and thrips.
