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).

Read below for more information on caring for your new plant.


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.

    My original shipment was damaged pretty good and the plant was very damaged. Sue was very helpful and great with communication to correct the situation. Ultimately needed to get a new plant and she promptly helped with that, and very happy with the plant I ended up with. Great customer service fixed an unfortunate shipping problem.

    • Sue Waltzer (store manager)

      Thanks for the very nice comments. I did get your photo of the one that was crushed during the trip and and happy to see that it is producing some new growth for you. It might take some time, but one day it will be beautiful like your replacement is!

    • Sue Waltzer (store manager)

      Thank you! It doesn’t happen often but we do get a few that are flipped upside down during their travels and I’m so sorry that yours was one of them. I hope they’re all doing well now and the damaged one should perk back up soon!

    I loved my first Lisa cane so much, I ordered another one! ❤️

    It’s very easy to take care of, just show it a lot of TLC & low light, so the beautiful leaves don’t burn.

    It also loves to be wiped with a moist cloth every few days too!

    Be sure you water it only when the soil is dry & let the water run through completely, it doesn’t like soggy soil.

    I also ordered a beautiful White Bird Of Paradise plant as well. ❤️

    I have never been more satisfied with large plants, they arrived here in excellent condition from Florida to Michigan. 👍

    They are very informative on caring for all the plants as well, & have videos on care for them too.

    Thank you! I look forward to ordering from Plantz again!

    Plant is even taller than expected, but exactly the size I needed. It was everything I hoped to receive…and more! Some leaves were scratched, but to be expected in shipping. Hope to have have this beautiful plant in my home for many years. I’ll be a return customer!

    I was so excited when I found this, since my sister lives in Hawaii, this plant reminds me of her! I got two Lisa canes, the smallest size, however I ended up with two beautifully large plants (at least 1-2 feet taller than I thought)! The lava rocks did fall out a bit in shipping, but I was amazed on how gorgeous the plants were when they arrived! Very excellent follow up by the company including step by step instructions on the best way to set up the plant, and a phone call to ensure you are happy with your order! I told my family about this company and they will be ordering a Lisa cane very soon from plantz too!

    Gorgeous plant! Arrived in perfect condition and obviously have very experienced packaging engineers doing this! Absolutely beautiful and just like the picture! You will NOT be disappointed! Yes the shipping is pricey but so worth it! I recommend the mood moss and decorative pots too with the foam collars as it is easy to install and really adds the finishing touch! I am waiting eagerly for to bring back the lemon lime dracenea cane so I may purchase for my living room!!! Thanks and shipping department for such an awesome job!! So much better than other online sites I’ve had! Perfect!!
