Your plant, Dracaena marginata Janet Graig, is easy to grow as a houseplant, or outdoors in spring and summer. It's sensitive to wind and to cold winter weather, so plan to keep yours indoors during that time. Dracaenas take low- to bright light conditions (even some direct sunlight). Water when the top inch of soil dries out, and water thoroughly, until water runs out of the holes of the containers. The plants are not heavy feeders, but you can encourage new growth by feeding in the spring and summer with a diluted liquid fertilizer. Don't feed in the winter time. Eventual height of your dracaena is about 12 feet with two-foot long leaves.
