Dracaena reflexa, a native to Madagascar, Mauritius and other nearby islands of the Indian Ocean, is widely grown as an ornamental plant and houseplant, valued for its richly coloured evergreen leaves and thick irregular stem.

Pleomele Shrub yields small clustered flowers, which are usually white in colour and are extremely fragrant.

Basic Care

Pleomele may require a bit of effort, but overall it is easy to care for, and the resulting plant is just worth the effort.

Being a houseplant, Dracaena reflexa can survive easily in average room conditions, even tolerating dry indoor air.

It is suggested that you replant this plant in spring when roots become coiled or grow out of the drainage holes in the container in which it was originally kept.

Always use fresh potting mix while you're transplanting.

Watering

Pleomele plant requires moist soil to grow during the time period between spring and fall.

Hence, water just enough to keep the soil moist.

In winter, reduce watering, as the plant prefers drier soil.

Avoid overwatering as it may make the soil waterlogged, causing root rot.

As it is an indoor plant, use room-temperature water for watering.

Soil

The plant thrives in a well-drained and moist soil.

Use a good quality all-purpose potting mix to plant.

Soggy soil will cause stems to become soft and mushy at the soil level.

Lighting

Pleomele, being a houseplant prefers bright indirect sunlight.

Place it near a window or in a space where indirect sunlight reaches. You'll get the best leaf colour in indirect sunlight.

Keeping this plant under direct sunlight can cause brown scorch marks on leaves.

Fertilizer

Pleomele is best fertilized in spring, just before new growth.

You can use any organic fertilizer to fertilize.

Feed the plant every 2 weeks in spring and summer with a diluted liquid fertilizer.

Size

Dracaena reflexa may reach up to the height of 4-5 m, rarely 6m in ideal protected locations but it is usually much smaller, around 3ft especially when grown as a houseplant.

Flowering

The flowers of Pleomele are small, clustered and usually white in colour.

They bloom in midwinters.

It is slow growing and upright in habit. Leaves are 5-20 cm long and 1.5-5 cm broad at the base.

Diseases

Dry air may attract spider mites to its leaves, hence regular misting with water is suggested, it will raise the humidity and also keep the pests away.
