    Description: Cordyline 'Calypso Queen', scientifically known as Cordyline fruticosa 'Calypso Queen', is a vibrant tropical plant admired for its striking, variegated foliage. The leaves are a stunning blend of green, yellow, and cream, often with hints of pink and red, creating a dazzling display of colors. Native to Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, this evergreen shrub adds a touch of tropical elegance and brightness to any indoor or outdoor space. Typically growing up to 3-6 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide, Cordyline 'Calypso Queen' is an excellent choice for adding bold color and texture to gardens, patios, and interior decor.

    Care Instructions:


    • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially in the morning. Avoid intense afternoon sun, which can scorch the leaves.


    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.


    • Thrives in high humidity environments. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain the necessary moisture levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.


    • Prefers temperatures between 65°F and 85°F (18°C - 29°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 55°F (13°C).


    • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.


    • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.


    • Remove any dead or damaged leaves to maintain appearance and encourage new growth. Regular pruning helps prevent disease and promotes a tidy, healthy plant.
