Dracaena reflexa (Song of India )

The dracaena plant is a popular ornamental houseplant, grown both indoors and outdoors in subtropical climates. Dracaena reflexa is commonly called song of India or song of Jamaica, is a tree native to Mozambique, Madagascar, Mauritius, and other nearby islands of the Indian Ocean. It is widely grown as an ornamental plant and houseplant, valued for its richly coloured, evergreen leaves, and thick, irregular stems. Song of India plants are described as variegated because the leaves are multicolored with bright green centers and yellow margins. The colors fade to lighter green and cream as individual leaves age. The leaves are lance-shaped and grow spirally around branches, up to one foot

Song of India is a good luck bringer houseplant.The universal symbolism of this plant is good fortune, happiness, health, and strength. Bamboo also plays a large role in chinese history,symbolizing virtue and elegance..Dracaena is one of the most effective houseplants in air purification. It helps remove formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene and carbon dioxide. These are chemicals linked with several health problems among them headaches, respiratory problems, anemia, marrow disease, kidney disease among others.The Dracaena is the perfect bedroom plant for smokers. Beyond its air-purifying qualities, the Dracaena can also suck up particles of smoke that cause health problems.Â

So, song of India plant was used in the NASA’s (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) clean air study which proved to remove a considerable amount of toxins from the environment. Traditional medicine practitioners of Madagascar have long believed Dracaena reflexa to cure malarial symptoms, poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea, dysmenorrhea, and to be useful as an antipyretic and hemostatic agent. The leaves and bark are mixed with parts of a number of other native plants and mixed into herbal teas. The Dracaena Marginata is one of the most popular home plants since it is very easy to care for and its tropical appearance integrates well in modern environments. With proper care, it has a great lifespan, living up to a decade in a pot, and it has an even longer life expectancy outdoors.

  • Light : The Song of India and Song of Jamaica, with yellow and white stripes in their leaves, need bright indirect light. Direct sun burns the leaves of all varieties of dracaena reflexa but a small amount of morning or evening sun is not a problem. Most types will tolerate fairly low light conditions, but you’ll notice increased growth if you move plants to sunnier locations. Don’t put them where the sun will shine directly on them, though, as the leaves may scorch.
  • Temperature : Dracaena prefers temperatures ranging from 65° – 85° celsius during the day. Night temperatures can drop about ten degrees cooler, but cold drafts and temperatures below 55℉ will harm the plant.
  • Water : Dracaenas do not require a lot of water and are healthiest when their soil is kept slightly moist but never soggy. Water your dracaena about once a week or every other week, allowing the soil to dry between waterings.When a dracaena is losing leaves, overwatering is the first place to look, but the problem can also be caused by too little water. Touching the soil at the bottom of the pot will let you know if this may be the case. Dracaena leaf drop might also be caused by a cool wind or too much heat.
  • Soil : This plant prefer loose, well-draining soil.This prevents water from accumulating and standing around roots for long periods of time, preventing root rot.A peaty, well-drained potting mix is best.If it doesn’t drain well, add sand to the mixture to improve it.It is a good suggestion to mix in some compost or peat moss before planting your Dracaena Reflexa. Your container should also have proper drainage at the bottom so water does not get trapped in its soil.
  • Fertilizer : Dracaena Reflexa does not need very much fertilizer, in particular, if they are planted in peaty soil with a lot of organic substance.fertilize once a month during spring and summer with a balanced, all purpose plant food diluted to a quarter strength.Â
  • Propagation : There are two ways by which one may take cuttings of dracaena – from the top and through stem cuttings. cut it just below the leaf line and be sure to include at least one node: roots grow from these round, white bumps on the stem. Then, either plant your cutting in some soil or place it in a nice vase filled with fresh water. Place the container in a warmish spot and wait. Roots and new growth should appear pretty quickly during the warm Summer months, while things can take a little longer during Wintertime. in India you can buy dracaena reflexa plants online anywhere through our website.
