Everything Grows provides the best available Hawaiian grown Dracaenas.  Read on to learn why they are the best.
Lush Dracaena Lisa from Hawaii

  


Dracaena growers in Hawaii start with their own local stock fields. The cane is
topped in the field and allowed to sprout before being cut into the
appropriate lengths.
The topped cane is fresh and healthy and produces strong roots once potted.  The resulting specimens are vigorous, full and rich
with color and aesthetic balance.

In
contrast, California and Florida Dracaena growers use imported bare cane from
Costa Rica and the Caribbean. This cane must use its stored food
reserves for the lengthy shipping process, as well as for the rooting
and sprouting process. The result is that the cane sprouting is
inconsistent, and the finished plant often looks thin and unbalanced.
For the growing medium, Hawaiian growers use cinder mixes
made from various ratios of Canadian peat moss and volcanic cinder. The
cinder is inert, decomposes very slowly, and has unique aeration and
water holding properties. It is this quality of soil aeration that makes
it possible for root systems to remain aerated and healthy even in low
light conditions existing in many interior spaces.
Most
Dracaena growers on the mainland use soil mixes comprised of wood
by-products, bark, sawdust and other fillers, which decompose quickly,
thereby greatly reducing soil aeration and thus plant quality and
longevity.
Finally, the Hawaiian Dracaenas that Everything Grows uses are acclimated to lower light conditions over time. This prepares the Dracaenas for the
artificial lighting conditions of the typical interior environment and
ensures a long lasting, lush and beautiful plant in our customer’s spaces.
