Native to a collection of islands in the Indian Ocean such as Madagascar and Mozambique, Song of India is a Dr. Seuss-looking plant with bright chartreuse striped leaves that are narrow, pointed and that are spirally arranged on its stems. While this evergreen plant is slow to grow, this is not a bad thing as this quality makes it the perfect (and popular) houseplant.
Song of India needs bright, indirect light. Intense, direct sun can unfortunately burn the leaves and low light will cause the plant’s yellow-lime striped vibrancy to fade and the plant to turn spindly. Mild morning sun is a great option.
Plant in quick-draining soil to prevent root rot or overwatering. And like all dracaenas, reflexa likes to live on the dry side which means let about half of the top soil dry out before giving it a drink. If your potting soil seems too heavy, add some sand to the mix.
