sun-icon-medium Medium Light


(11 customer reviews)



Very high temperatures can damage tropical foliage. Some shipments may be delayed if it is expected to be very hot in transit or at the destination address. You can avoid delays by selecting the "Express Saver" shipping option.

What a great plant!  The Pleomele reflexa, flies under the radar for most designers and homeowners but it’s an excellent choice with lots of character.  Ours are propagated in south Florida by one of our favorite nurseries and the specimens in 14″ growpots are tall and can be placed in tight spaces.  Although it’s a close relative of Dracaenas, it is considered a medium-light plant and needs a little more light than a Lisa Cane; but its character is striking.  Place it near a window and let it grow – it’s an easy plant requiring little attention.

The Reflexa is available in 2 sizes in 10″ and 14″ growpot.

Check out this video to learn more about the Reflexa from our plant specialists.

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


The Reflexa will survive in low light, but thrives in moderate- and high-light spaces.  If you can get it in good light, you can get it and (nearly) forget it.  Here are some tips to keep it growing:


Like other members of the Dracaena family, it prefers its rootzone on the dry side; so make sure the soil dries out between waterings.   See our watering guide for more information.


Although it’s a close relative of Dracaenas, the Reflexa still needs at least moderate light. It’s great near a window with filtered light but not in a dark spot. Like others, do not expose this plant to direct sunlight or it will burn the leaves very quickly.


The Reflexa will not need to be fed during the first 6 months after it has shipped. During this time, it will use the residual nutrients from nursery production. After 6 months, it can be fed quarterly with a complete fertilizer formulated for interior plants. Please refer to our nutrient guide for details.


This plant, with its numerous trunks and plentiful small leaves, is a bit more challenging to clean.  While we prefer a cleaning regimen with water and a light soap solution, it would be okay to break out the feather duster on this plant.  Make sure your feather duster is clean though – it’s a primary way to get bugs from one plant to another.  Don’t be afraid to crank up the shower and give it rinse off with some tepid water every now and then too.


In good light, the Reflexa can grow up and out, sometimes requiring minor pruning.  Cut stems below where you’d like new growth to fill in, since the cut will prompt growth in that area.  The lower leaves can turn yellow and are easily pulled off.  See our pruning guide for details.


The biggest threat for the Reflexa is Mealybugs and they can be pesky.  So, keep it clean.  Look for the little white cottony bugs at the base of the leaves.  If you see them, break out the spray bottle with a light soap solution and spray them daily ’til they’re gone.


Aside from the mealybug threat, just pluck off the old leaves and enjoy this one.

      Thank you! In Florida, they tend to grow year round so they might be a bit different from the specs you see on our site!
      Thanks – Sue

    I live in the northeast and received a beautiful plant. I opted for the largest Reflexa. It’s surprising how well it faired through the shipping process. Clear instructions were provided and customer support was able to quickly answer my question related to the timing of my shipment. The plant is doing well so far in medium light conditions.

    As great as the plant looks in the pictures, they still don’t do it justice. It showed up in perfect condition. I didn’t have to go to the store and figure out how to get such a large plant home. Most places don’t even have plants this nice. With the lengths Plantz goes to to ensure I knew how to open my plant and care for my plant to ensure it stays as healthy. You can tell how much they care about their plants and customers by reading their descriptions and watching their videos. The service and communication regarding my order was very impressive as well. Great company, Great Plants. Thank you for everything.
