Andre Junior's survival guide
Limelight Dracaenas get their name for a reason and, despite popular belief (and science), it’s not the color of their leaves. It’s because they love attention, or “the limelight”. Our Andre here is the biggest attention seeker of all, even though he really doesn't need it. We think it 'stems' (heh) from issues with his father, who he claims was professional wrestler Andre the Giant. While the truth is often subjective, our standby plant therapist agrees that he’s probably just really confused. But there’s no sob story in that, no book deal, no possibility of a memoir directed by, produced by, and starring Andre Jr. So, despite being biologically and chronologically impossible, we’ve agreed to introduce him as the abandoned son of a long dead French wrestler. Contact our publicist for any booking inquiries.

What makes Andre Junior so special
Dracaena fragrans ‘Limelight’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Limelight, in particular, are known for their wide, neon green leaves.
Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!
If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water.
