Temperature : Average temperatures from 18ºC to 27ºC are ideal
Lighting preference : Can live in medium light but performs better when exposed to bright light. Direct sun will burn leaves.
Irrigation of water : During the warmer summer months when the plant is growing, water once the top of the soil is dry. In the winter your plant will be resting and therefore will require less water
Humidity : The Glauca likes a high humidity .To have a long-lasting pleasure from this plant, you can spray it regularly . stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant. The lower leaves of Cordyline will naturally die back as the plant grows. These should be carefully removed, to maintain a tidy appearance.
Fertilization and feeding : During the growing season, feed it with a liquid fertiliser once or twice a month
Soil : does best in well-draining soil. A good soil will contain lots of organic matter such as coco coir as well as perlite or vermiculite to help with drainage. Adding a handful of perlite to regular store-bought potting soil should do the trick!
Toxicity : Toxic to pets if ingested.
Pot Size : It is best to repot a once every two years in a larger pot. The best period for repotting is spring or immediately after the plant has been purchased. A larger pot will stimulate growth and the advantage is a larger buffer soil so that the water is spread more and there is less chance of root rot. Always take a pot that is 20 to 25% larger and do not use Hydro pellets on the bottom of the pot. It is best to use a plastic insert cover for large pots.
Pruning : Remove dead and dry leaves to keep your plant looking tidy and encourage new growth
Diseases : Watch out for white mealy bugs on the underside of the leaf. If found the leaves can be treated with insecticidal soap or a solution of rubbing alcohol and water.
Brown tips to the leaves are the result of a dry atmosphere, try giving you plant a good misting and water more regularly.
Over time the lower leaves will tend to dry up and turn brown, remove these to keep your plant looking tidy.
