Large Dracaena Deremensis 'Rikki'
Our lovely Dracaena Rikki is from regions in Africa, Central America, and Asia and thrives in warmer temps. It is a relatively new species of the Dracaenas and is characterized by its yellow and neon hues that make it look like it's doused in the sun's rays. It’s part of a large, but sensational genus containing approximately 120 different species of Dracaena plants. How would you feel if you had 120 brothers and sisters? The average size of the houseplant is approximately 2.5 feet tall, but each Hawaii Rikki will be different. Use our AR tool and your phone to see what Audrey will look like before she gets there. Large plant deliveries are also extra packaged with eco-friendly materials to keep them safe!
Dracaena Rikki Benefits
Rikki is very much like its sibling, Dracaena Hawaii Sunshine both making you feel like you’re vacationing in the tropics. Besides enchanting everyone who comes over, other benefits include its ability to make things feel really fresh in the room it’s placed in. Dracaena are some of the most effective air-purifying houseplants around, with exceptional ability to remove air toxic gases.
Our customers love the lush foliage of the Rikki. It has long, emerald and lime striped leaves that are slim, several inches long, and tend to drape over like a cascading waterfall of green. To accentuate the bright colors, this Dracaena has darker shades of seaweed and juniper green. The Dracaena also has some pretty cool trunk-like stems that are pear-colored, thick, and branch out the way tree trunks do. The way they stick straight up and grow at different heights also adds to the cascading waterfall effect.
Besides the bundles we already do have, you can collect and devise a bundle of your own. We had one specifically in mind...collect all the Dracaena! We have about 13 different ones for you to start with. Some cute lil’ greenies you can add include our Janet Craig and Dorado Dracaena variants. Which one will you choose?
The leaves on this beauty can get sensitive to some toxins, however, with the leaf tips turning brown and drying up in reaction to fluoride in the water. If you realize your local tap water is high in fluoride levels and start noticing scorched leaves, you can collect rainwater or use purified water instead.
