Cordyline fruticosa ‘Norwoodiensis’

Cordylines are very close relatives of Dracaenas. They have the same strap-shaped or lanceolate leaves on a slender stem. Unlike Dracaenas, they have tuberous white roots. C. fruticosa is grown for its long-stalked leaves, measuring up to 50 cm (20 in) in length and striped reddish-brown.

Because this is a heat-loving species, it also requires quite high humidity. Mist or sponge the leaves regularly. The compost should never be allowed to dry out, but soggy compost is not tolerated either. There are no special light requirements. Propagate by tip, stem or root cuttings.
