Ti plants or cordylines, also known as ti and Hawaiian good-luck plant, are very popular for their intense leaf colors and leaf shapes producing interest and contrasts even in deep shade. They require low to medium light and temperatures anywhere from 65-75F and not below 50F. Thriving on neglect, Cordyline plants are tolerant of both over and under watering.
