Dracaena Marginata Sun Ray is a specific cultivar of Dracaena Marginata, a popular and attractive houseplant known for its slender, upright stems and distinctive variegated foliage.

The leaves are long, narrow, and arch gracefully from the top of the stems. The central portion of the leaves is typically green, while the margins (edges) are adorned with bold, bright yellow or golden stripes. This variegation creates a stunning contrast and gives the plant its "Sun Ray" name.

Dracaena Marginata Sun Ray typically grows as a slender, upright plant with multiple stems. It can reach a height of about 4 to 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 meters) indoors, making it a great choice for adding vertical interest to your living space.

This cultivar of Dracaena Marginata is more tolerant of lower light conditions compared to some other houseplants. While it prefers bright, indirect light, it can adapt to moderate or even lower light levels. However, to maintain the best coloration and growth, providing adequate light is still essential.


1. Light: Place the plant in bright, indirect light for best growth and vibrant foliage. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hot afternoon hours, as it can scorch the leaves.

2. Temperature: Dracaena Marginata Sun Ray thrives in average room temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). It is sensitive to cold temperatures, so keep it away from drafts and cold air.

3. Watering: Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's essential to let the soil dry slightly between waterings. Stick your finger into the soil to gauge moisture levels.

4. Humidity: Dracaenas appreciate moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by using a humidifier, placing a humidity tray nearby, or misting the leaves regularly.

5. Soil: Use well-draining, rich potting soil to promote healthy root growth.

6. Fertilizer: Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) about once a month. Reduce or eliminate fertilization during the winter months when the plant's growth slows down.

7. Pruning: Trim off any yellow or damaged leaves to maintain the plant's appearance and health.

Dracaena Marginata Sun Ray is a lovely and relatively easy-to-care-for houseplant that can brighten up any indoor space with its stunning foliage. With the right conditions and care, it can thrive and bring beauty to your home for years to come.
