I like to plant dracaena, as it is attractive for its lush vegetation and a very refined look in any room. Recently, I began to notice that the tips of the sheet steel plates to dry.
The main causes of dry tips of the leaves of Dracaena
In order to determine the cause of dry ends, I turned to the forum, to the same amateur flower growers and found that drying at the tips of dracaena primarily linked:
· With dry air in a room;
· Not correct watering and locations;
· Excess of light;
The result was that in the summer I sprinkle flower only once a day, and the procedure should be 3-4 times.
I also do not properly watered the flower, ie, Sometimes the soil was too flooded and as a result the roots of subjected to excessive moisture putrescence, and the tips of the leaves did not obtain the required nutrients started dry.
Also on the recommendations of other owners dracaena I began to put the pot in a warm room, and looked to him did not pass through the draft, controlled temperature conditions.
Despite the fact that this plant likes bright light, but direct rays have a negative impact on him, so on the advice of others growers by setting plants on the south side, I place it within one meter from the window to the flower did not receive burns.

To completely get rid of dry leaves dracaena I used in several ways.

2. Next to the pot, place a container with water.
3. In addition to spraying the leaves, wash them engaged 1 time per month.
4. During the heating season, the hot laying battery damp towel.
5. Installed in a room humidifier.
Yet it becomes dratsenu add nitrogen fertilizers for ornamental deciduous plants. There were available potassium and phosphorus, which gives it a full-fledged growth.
In the spring-summer period has added fertilizer such as nitrogen to active growth. Feeding themselves carried out 2 times a month.
To exclude overfeeding made slightly smaller dosage than recommended in the instructions.
As a preventive measure once a year wiped dratsenu soapy water, treat it acaricidal drugs to prevent the occurrence of pests for which this plant is a tasty morsel.
