Stuart, a Dracaena Steudneri, or Corn Plant, has bright, tropical green leaves that'll bring a pop of colour to any home!
There are more than 40 cultivated varieties of Dracaena, which are originally from forests in Africa. In the wild, they can grow to a height of 6 metres or more but don't worry, its unlikely indoor plants will get this big!
If Stuart is really happy, he'll even display lovely scented small white flowers.
Stuart, Dracaena Steudneri
Stuart prefers indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
