Cordyline Fruticosa 'Sherbert', commonly known as Dracaena Terminalis, thrives in indoor environments that offer bright, indirect sunlight. It can adapt to medium light conditions, but its growth might slow. It should be planted in well-draining soil within a pot that has drainage holes to avoid waterlogged conditions.

Care Tips

This plant is relatively low-maintenance. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, watering when the top inch of soil feels dry. Use a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the spring and summer months. While pruning isn’t generally necessary, removing yellow or damaged leaves can improve the plant's appearance.


The vibrant foliage of Cordyline Fruticosa 'Sherbert' makes it an excellent choice for adding a touch of elegance to both home and office settings. Its ease of care makes it suitable for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts.

Planting Tips

For planting Cordyline Fruticosa 'Sherbert', choose a pot with sufficient drainage and use well-draining soil. Place the pot in an area that receives bright, indirect light. Water the plant thoroughly once the top inch of the soil has dried, allowing any excess water to drain away freely.


Regular maintenance includes appropriate watering and fertilization during the growing season. Yellowing leaves can indicate overwatering. To promote optimal growth, protect the plant from drafts and maintain a warm, humid environment.

Pests and Diseases

While Cordyline Fruticosa 'Sherbert' is generally resistant to pests, it can occasionally attract pests such as mealybugs or spider mites. Regular monitoring and treatment with neem oil or insecticidal soap are recommended if pests are observed. To prevent fungal diseases and avoid root rot, ensure good airflow and proper watering practices.
