Grow most dracaenas in regular household conditions; they tolerate low light, but thrive in medium and bright spots, too. Water dracaenas when the soil surface gets dry; that's often about once a week or so, but can vary depending on the size of your plant, the size of its pot, the amount of light it gets, and other factors. Most dracaenas really don't require much fertilizer --- only once or twice a year to keep them healthy. But if you want more growth, you can fertilize more frequently. If your dracaena gets too tall and lanky, you can prune the top off. Most types will resprout and become bushier. If your dracaena has brown leaf tips, try boosting the humidity --- dry air (or soil that stays dry too long) can cause the leaves to develop this problem.
