Compacta, as the name suggests, is a compact version of Dracaena fragrans. The branched version is grown to allow the development of branches and the dark green tropical foliage along the stems, creating a natural verdant look in contemporary interiors. Dracaena Compacta likes bright conditions and enjoys slightly raised humidity. Like all Dracaena it helps purify the surrounding air.
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.
Too dry for too long! Not watering often enough will cause the tips to turn brown. If you are watering often, the issue is the humidity. Time to start spraying.
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.
