Compacta as the name suggests is a compact version of Dracaena fragrans. It has a thick green stem and superb, dense clumps of short, dark green leaves. This is one variety of Dracaena whose leaves are not variegated; instead you get a wonderful rich and deep glossy green leaf, with deep veining, similar to the Aspidistra. Compacta is very definitely a stylish option and looks stunning in modern, contemporary settings. Dracaena Compacta likes bright conditions and enjoys slightly raised humidity. Like all Dracaena it helps purify the surrounding air.

Horty Hints

Manage and Maintain! Inconsistent levels of water, temperature and light can damage some leaves beyond repair. Thankfully these can be torn in half lengthways and pulled out.

Rough Round the Edges! Brown leaf margins is often a symptom of too much fertiliser. If you don’t fertilise it could be the fluoride in the water. Fix it with filtered water.

Tame the Tipping! Blackening of leaf tips and leaf edges is a sign that the plant has had too much water. Allow to dry out in-between waterings.
