- Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. While Cordyline fruticosa can tolerate lower light conditions, it thrives in well-lit areas.
- Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering again. Reduce watering in the winter months.
- Soil: Plant in well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. A mix of potting soil and perlite works well for container planting.
- Fertilization: Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to salt buildup in the soil.
- Pruning: Trim any yellow or damaged leaves regularly to encourage new growth. Pruning can also help maintain the plant’s shape.
