Sanderiana is a very unpretentious plant, and she does not need special care. However, in order to make the plant feel comfortable, it is worth following a few simple rules. Transplant dracen at home is also not difficult.
The main criteria for growing sanderiana:
- Lighting, humidity and air temperature. Dracaena Sander is one of the most shade-tolerant plants of this family.
But under the direct rays of the sun it should not be placed - the leaves of the plant will turn yellow, and after a while the dracaena will die. Sanderiana will be great to grow away from the window in a well-lit room.
At the same time, the room should be warm enough - the optimum temperature varies between 18-30 degrees. It is worth noting that the bamboo dracaena does not tolerate drafts.
The plant will not be against regular spraying with water, however it perfectly adapts to the conditions of a room with dry air.
Dracaena Sandera grows well in conditions of insufficient lighting in apartments and houses. The flower can even be called shade-loving.
The dracaen leaves of the sander strain grow directly from the stem. Imitation of a bamboo shoot can be used to decorate interiors in an ethnic style.
- Watering. For the healthy growth of the sanderna requires well-moistened soil and care.
Therefore, regular watering it is simply necessary. Watering the plant is necessary when the top layer of the soil has dried to a depth of about two centimeters. Use clean or dewatered water, since the plant does not tolerate the chlorine that is contained in the tap.
- Hygiene. Care for dracaena should include cleaning the leaves from dust.
If your plant lives in water, do not forget about the need for regular replacement (1 time in 2 weeks) with the washing of the red-brown roots from the resulting plaque. Also in order to avoid decay, you should always ensure that the fallen leaves do not stay in the water.
- Fertilizer. Dracaena Sander needs a fertilizer and complex fertilizer. Dracaena is fed only in the summer (1 time in 2 weeks), and in the winter they take a break. If sander grows in water, soluble fertilizers are used.
- Reproduction. The most common method of propagation of dracena sander is the method of dividing the stem.
Stem cuttings are able to take root both in water and in the ground. If the reproduction is carried out by rooting the cuttings in water, it is necessary to add a little activated carbon to it to avoid decay.
If you plan to plant the apical cuttings immediately into the soil, then it must be well moistened. The rooting in the substrate of sand and peat is best.
Another way to reproduce bamboo dracaena is using shoots with sleeping buds. They are also, in the first place, lowered into the water, and after the appearance of the roots are transplanted into a sand-peat mixture. Or they are left to grow and develop in the water sphere.
Dracena Sander is not planted in classic pots with soil, but in transparent jugs with water. Interesting solutions for the interior.

Seed germination can last from one to six months.

- Formation. How to prune a dracaena. For how this bamboo plant grows and forms, it is necessary to watch constantly.
After the transplantation of the stem of the dracaena, new shoots will start growing after a while. And if they are not removed, the plant risks acquiring a run-down and shapeless appearance.
On the site of remote shoots, new processes may reappear. If you want to avoid this, then after trimming the dracaena you need to process the edges of the segments with paraffin.
To give the trunks an interesting decorative form, young shoots are placed in special tubes. In dracaena transplanting shoots takes a special position. After the escape will grow, it will retain the shape of the spiral. Unfortunately, this form of the trunk can only be obtained by artificial means.
