The song of India plant is a species from the dracaena genus (dracaena reflexa) that has become a popular house plant.This tree like plant is fairly easy to grow and maintain like others from this genus, although it does require high humidity levels.There are various cultivars of the dracaena reflexa that display different leaf variations, although the most popular you'll see sold in garden stores is the yellow edged variegata type. They usually grow up to about 3ft tall indoors (which takes a fair few years) and have a bushy tree type of look about them.

The leaves are the main attraction to this species - although it does flower (we'll cover that shortly). These leaves are glossy that arch over and grow up to 1ft long and a couple of inches or so wide. Some of these seem to grow quite out of hand (especially outdoors) and start to look a bit ugly, which can be overcome with pruning and training it's growth. The song of India plant was used in the NASA's (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) clean air study which proved to remove a considerable amount of toxins from the environment. The ideal temperatures are between 60°F (15°C) - 80°F (27°C). Allowing temperatures to go below 55°F/12°C can harm the plant. Avoid having a plant sitting near cold drafts. Normal room humidity is usually fine, however, if you can?....(this will help your plant grow well) provide higher humidity levels. You can can improve the humidity by placing the plant on a tray of pebbles sitting in water (water below pebble tops) or use a humidifier. You will find the lower leaves on this plant turn yellow after a period of time which is normal. Remove the lower leaves when they begin to yellow. You may also want to clean the leaves with tepid water using a soft sponge – to help it look attractive.
