Lisa Cane

(54 customer reviews)


Ahh…the Lisa Cane.  On display indoors, this plant really conveys elegance and it’s one of the best performers in low-light spaces.  For all you Corn Plant haters out there (and we know who you are), this is a great alternative because the strap leaves are deep, deep green and the stems are green too.  It’s tall, and not very wide, so it fits well in corners and tight places and it has a low maintenance requirement – instantly turning plant novices in to plant heroes.  The Lisa Cane is from our Hawaiian Collection, so it’s already made the trip from Hawaii to the mainland and it’s ready for shipment to you.

The Lisa is available in three sizes – tall, taller and tallest (see size selection for details).

This versatile plant is great for low-light and tight areas, and it’s pretty easy to keep looking good. Here’s what you need to know about the Lisa Cane:


The Lisa Cane is propagated in Hawaii, so it’s grown in lava rock giving it some very forgiving watering requirements. Preferring only a slightly moist rootzone, it won’t drink a lot of water, and with the right set up and spot, it can go a full month (and sometimes several months) between waterings. See our watering guide for more information.


This plant is a Dracaena, and has one of the lowest light requirements of all the plants we offer. It’s great near a window with filtered light or a corner with only artificial light. Do not, however, expose this plant to direct sunlight or it will burn the leaves very quickly.


The Lisa Cane will not need to be fed during the first 12 months after it has shipped. During this time, it will use the residual nutrients from nursery production. After 12 months, it can be fed quarterly with a complete fertilizer formulated for interior plants. Please refer to our nutrient guide for details.


This is an easy plant to keep clean, and a good thing because its deep green leaves can get dusty over time. Simply wiping the leaves with a wet cloth usually does the trick. For spots where something else (besides dust) has landed on your plant, use a mild soapy solution to wet the cloth; then wipe. This will restore the luster to your plant.


Don’t. Unless your plant is not meeting the dimensions of its intended space, you will not need to prune this plant. Older leaves, though, may yellow, and they can be pruned or snapped off. Brown tips can be trimmed off to the contour of the leaf. See our pruning guide for details.


The Lisa is not a big target for pests. Mealybugs will be the main pest, and sometimes scale will affect the plant. Both easily controlled by wiping the infested area with a soapy solution. It can take several intermittent cleanings to rid the plant of the pests, but persistence will pay off.


Minor leaf spots and old age will be your biggest worry with the Lisa Cane.

  • Leaf spots – Spots on the leaves may be a natural imperfection from production. If your new Lisa has a few spots, don’t sweat it – it’s Mother Nature’s way of letting you know it’s a real, live plant. Over time, leaf spots, especially on the margins, can develop from a build-up of fluoride in the leaves from water sources treated with fluoride – like almost everywhere that water comes from a treatment plant. If you can water with rain water from your garden, have at it; otherwise, be on the lookout for discolored margins over a very long period of time.  When older leaves become unsightly, just remove them.
  • Yellow and brown leaves – Old leaves may turn yellow and begin to brown. These should be removed.

    I’ve been having some issues with leaves yellowing and browning. I know leaves are supposed to fall from the bottom over time but these are at the top. I love the plant. It’s gorgeous other than that. I have video to provide if needed. Would love tips on how to stop the yellowing/browning.

      Hi Jazmine – this is most likely a watering issue but I believe we’ve already worked this out.
      Thanks – Sue

    The plant stork delivered a healthy, happy 5-1/2 ft Lisa Cane Draecena to my doorstep about a week ago, and it’s acclimating well. It doesn’t stand perfectly straight from all angles, but I’m working on that!

    It’s not doing as well as the others but I’m hoping in time it comes around. This one seems to take a beating through FedEx. Just curious how another delivery service might work.

    We love our plants even though it’s going through an obvious transition period. We are optimistic that they will do well. Thanks for your support. Hoping it will look like the one in the pic in a few weeks 🙂
