Dracaena Cintho, or Dracaena Fragans Cintho Corn Plant, a gorgeous Dracaena variety, is a great plant option because of its broad, strappy leaves with distinct emerald and lime-green coloring. It is an eye-catching houseplant with two or three stems that resemble mini-palm trees and grow in spaces where natural sunlight may be limited.
Dracaena Fragans Cintho grows slowly and can reach about 3 feet tall with a spread of only 1.5 feet, which is perfect for limited space.
This plant is effective at removing toxins and purifying the air in indoor spaces.
Native in Africa, it is recommended to put this plant in fairly low light. A spot with indirect sunlight or near an east-facing window to prevent it from sunburning is good.
This fairly drought-resistant evolves to tolerate periods of water scarcity. It is good to water only when the top half of the soil is dry or when a moisture meter reads 2-3.
Light, fast-draining potting soil.
Temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit are ideal for Dracaena Cintho. A freezing or scorching spot can damage most of the leaves in a flash.
This plant should be fertilized once a month in the spring/summer with a diluted, gentle liquid fertilizer. During the colder period, you can skip it.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
