Product details

Dracaena Mysore Ruby is a captivating cultivar of the Dracaena genus, valued for its striking appearance and relatively low maintenance requirements. Here are some key points about it:

 

 

  1. Appearance: Dracaena Mysore Ruby is characterized by its vibrant, deep red foliage. The leaves are long and narrow, with a glossy texture, making it an eye-catching addition to any indoor space.

 

  1. Growth Habit: This plant typically grows as a compact shrub, reaching a height of around 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 cm) indoors. It has a slow to moderate growth rate, which means it won't quickly outgrow its space.

 

  1. Light Requirements: Dracaena Mysore Ruby prefers bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate some shade, too much darkness may result in leggy growth and loss of color vibrancy in its leaves. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the foliage.

 

  1. Watering: Like most Dracaena species, Mysore Ruby prefers evenly moist soil but can tolerate occasional drying out between waterings. It's essential not to let the soil become waterlogged, as this can lead to root rot. Watering once the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry is generally sufficient.

 

  1. Temperature and Humidity: This plant thrives in typical indoor temperatures ranging from 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). It can tolerate average indoor humidity levels, but occasional misting or placing a pebble tray with water beneath the pot can help increase humidity, especially in drier environments.

 

  1. Soil: A well-draining potting mix is ideal for Dracaena Mysore Ruby. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and sand works well to provide good drainage while retaining some moisture.

 

  1. Maintenance: Regular dusting of the leaves to keep them clean and free from debris will not only improve the plant's appearance but also help it photosynthesize efficiently. Pruning is generally minimal, mainly to remove any dead or yellowing foliage.

 

  1. Toxicity: Like many Dracaena species, Mysore Ruby is considered mildly toxic to pets if ingested. Keep it out of reach of curious pets and children.

Overall, Dracaena Mysore Ruby is a stunning indoor plant that can add a pop of color and elegance to any room with its rich red foliage and easy-care nature.
