Cordyline (Ti plant) comes from the Greek word kordyle, meaning club, and used to refer to enlarged rhizomes. It does best in bright light. Outdoors bright light to full sun exposure and protected from wind. Handles dry and poor soil conditions but appreciates a good, rich well-drained soil inside or outside. Indoors lightly fertilize with a liquid 20-20-20 fertilizer 1/2 strength. Outdoors, apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer in the spring. DO NOT over-water.
