I believe that only fertilizers are able to provide necessary nutrients for dracaena.

“Dracaena: how much fertilizer” is not the only problem. You are also to know ‘when’. It’s better to fertilize during spring and summer months. When we speak about red sister plant, you are to treat it carefully as well. Make sure you fertilize both outdoor and indoor containers.
