      Good Luck Plant - Cordyline

      English name:
      Good Luck Plant - Hawaiian Ti Plant - Baby Doll Ti

       Latin name:
      Cordyline Fruticosa Mambo 

       About me:

      I am a wonderful colourful tropical foliage plant, with lovely glossy maroon tinged leaves that branch off a central stem.

      I am form in a manner similar to Dracaena (we are both members of the same family), with our lower leaves dying to encourage new growth as the plant develops.

       

       Origin: 
      Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific Ocean region.
       Water:

      Keep my soil moist at all times.

      Allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before re-watering & reduce watering in winter.

      I will tolerate some degree of drought & don't allow the bottom of the plant to stand in water.

      If possible use rain or filtered water to avoid the tips of the leaves turning brown.


      Temperature:
      Average to warm household temperatures from 18-27°C and always above 13°C. Avoid cold drought.

       Height/Growth:
      Ultimate height 100-150cm indoors, but don't you worry I don't grow to fast.  

       

       Feed:

      Apply a weak solution of liquid fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season.

      Do not use fertilisers containing fluoride.

       

       Light:

      Best in bright, indirect light.
      Direct sunlight should be limited to a few hours a day at most as it may scorch the leaves.
      Can tolerate some degree of shade for part of the day.

       Air Purifying:

      This plant filters airborne toxins such as such as formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene from the atmosphere and is part of our clean air plant collection.

      Mexico and Central America.

      Humidity:

      Can tolerate some dry, indoor air, but does better with a little extra humidity and will appreciate the occasional misting with lukewarm water, which will also help keep the leaves free of dust. Brown leaf tips are an indication that the plant is not getting enough humidity.

      Give a drink whenever the top two inches of soil feel dry.

      Normally every 1-2 weeks.

      Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
