Dracaena Janet Craig Bio
Hailing from Africa, Dracaena Janet Craig, or Dracaena Deremensis, is named after the Derema Forest in Tanzania. As the original Deremensis disappeared from cultivation, it was replaced by its resilient, adaptable and air-purifying daughter - Janet Craig, wearing a thick and wavy forest green foliage. As it evolves, Dracaena Janet Craig will drop a few lower leaves to be replaced by newer leaves on top.
Light Instructions
Dracaena Janet Craig grows best in a well lit space with bright direct or indirect sunlight, and can adapt to spaces with medium to low light, where the source of light is further away. Avoid placing it in spaces without natural sunlight.

Dracaena Janet Craig Care
On your Dracaena Janet Craig’s first few days at home, it may lose several leaves, or leaves may turn yellow. This is no reason for concern. Simply shake off or cut the leaf, and look forward to new and better-adjusted leaves. To help it grow optimally and evenly, occasionally dust the leaves and rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month. To maintain its aesthetic shape and height, you may periodically prune it to your liking.
