Question: How to care for the cordyline plant indoors?

Answer: Your cordyline will grow well indoors if you provide bright light, keep the soil on the dry side and keep the temperatures cool. Place your plant in bright, direct light or sunlight through unobstructed south, east, or west window, and within 4 feet of the window. Cool temperatures equate to 60 degrees F., with variations from 50 degrees F. to 70 degrees F. Night temperature 50 degrees F. to 60 degrees F. For best performance, your cordyline should receive infrequent waterings. For pots 6" diameter or less, soil surface should be dry to the touch before rewatering. For containers of greater diameter, media should be dry 1" to 2" below the surface (When water is required, apply thoroughly until excess drains out the bottom.)

Enjoy your beautiful plant!
