A tall, broad-leafed Dracaena, similar to Dracaena Burley in colouring, but with less regular markings. The lovely strong, yellow stripe along the leaf centre looks like it has been applied with a paint brush, with delightful streaks and missing segments. The branched version is grown to a uniform height and allowed to branch along its length for a bushy natural look.

It is a tough and resilient specimen and will tolerate some shade as well as helping to clean the air of toxins. It's full Latin name is Dracaena fragrans steudneri 'Cintho'.

Dracaena fragrans Cintho - Branched Care & Info Guide

Light: Dracaena Cintho prefers medium to bright light but can tolerate lower light levels.

Water: Water when the soil starts to dry out at the top, water well and allow to drain thoroughly. Dracaena are relatively drought tolerant. Do not over water as this will cause the leaf tips to blacken.

Temperature: Average household temperatures between 16-24°C but can cope with as low as 12°C for short periods.

Feed: Apply a weak dose of a fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season. View Plant Nutrition
