Quick Description

The deep green leaves of the Dracaena ‘Florida Beauty’ are sprinkled with cream, creating the illusion of glitter on their leaves.

Size - 4"

Key Information & Plant Overview

Other Common Names: Gold Dust Dracena
Binomial Name: Dracaena surculosa
Care Level: Easy
Light: Bright, indirect light
Water: Allow top 2” of soil to dry
Pet Friendly: No

Unlike its cousins, the ‘Florida Beauty’ has a shrubby evergreen appearance and grows only a foot tall upon maturity. Do not fear this compact dracaena’s allure comes from its variegated elliptic leaves and wiry stems. The deep green leaves are sprinkled with cream, creating the illusion of glitter on their leaves. Native to Western Africa in the tropical rainforest region. Its tolerance to neglect and the hardy bamboo-like stems make for the ideal house guest. 

PlantX Top Tip: In order to maintain the bright dunny pattern, the ‘croton’ needs to be placed in consistent bright indirect lighting conditions. Or else the variegation will begin to recede on new growth. 

How to Care for Dracaena ‘Florida Beauty’

Light: Prefers bright, indirect light
Water: Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering.
Humidity: Average relative humidity of 25% to 49%
Temperature: Average from 18°C to 24°C (65°F - 75°F)
Fertilizer: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
Soil: Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix.
Propagation: Stem cuttings and division
Repotting: This can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot.
Cleaning Tip: Remove dust and debris by gently wiping the leaves with a damp cloth.
Toxicity: Toxic. Always keep plants away from pets and children.

Dracaena ‘Florida Beauty’ - Common Problems

The young leaves are shedding and falling: This could be a sign of underwatering and lack of light. If this is the case, move your plant to a brighter location and change your watering routine. If the old leaves are shedding and falling, don’t be alarmed. This is a natural process that happens due to maturity.

The tips of the leaves are turning yellow and brown: Dracaenas can be sensitive to tap water. If this continues, switch to using distilled water, rainwater, or set a glass of water out overnight to reduce the chlorine content. Ensure your watering routine is consistent. 

How often should I fertilize my Dracena: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests: Scale, spider mites, and thrips.
