Plant Details

Dracaena Compacta is a structural, vertical pointing tree that exhibits a distinctive striped trunk topped with foliage. It's a great choice for people looking for a unique statement plant, and will keep its relative shape much longer than most plants.

Slow growing and able to go longer periods between waterings, it's still one of the more difficult dracaenas to maintain. They require higher light than most dracaenas, and will acquire large yellow and brown spots on their leaves if lighting is inadequate. If placed far back from a window, it's important to rotate the Dracaena Compacta regularly to ensure the far side of the plant will receive light.

    Greenery NYC offers next day delivery for orders placed before 12pm Monday through Friday.

However we cannot acquiesce this request during the winter or in severe weather. If no one is there to receive the delivery and we are unable to leave it behind, a re-delivery fee will be incurred. Cancelled orders will incur a 20% restocking fee once they have been prepared for delivery.

  • Light Requirements

    This is a medium light plant. It will do best in a bright location with mostly indirect light. This would be directly in front of a North or East facing window. It will also thrive 5ft-10ft removed from a West or South facing window.

    Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

    The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for an indoor plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

  • Plant Care

    Native to southeast Africa, the Dracaena compacta appreciates a warm and humid environment with a moderate amount of water and light. This plant has a unique structural element that offers a clean and elegant look.

    CARE LEVEL
    Moderate.

    LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
    Prefers bright indirect light, but can tolerate medium light conditions.

    WATER REQUIREMENTS
    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Dracaena like moderately dry soil and will rot when too much moisture is present. If soil is dry 1⁄2 way down the pot, then the plant is ready for a drink. Avoid allowing the soil to dry completely. Be sure to water slowly near the base of the plant as Dracaena compacta have shallow roots.

    HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
    Medium humidity. Dracaena appreciate an occasional leaf dusting and misting. Place your plant away from hot or cold air drafts.

    ADDITIONAL INFO
    Dracaena are sensitive to fluoride and other minerals commonly found in tap water. Over time this sensitivity can cause some discoloration of the leaves. Read our detailed plant care guide for more information.
