The lush and lustrous green leaves of this dragon tree will create an attractive focal point in your home, while being incredibly undemanding and easy to care for. Their upright habit offers height without taking up too much floor space, so they are ideal adding impact to hallways or smaller rooms. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
- Home care: Water well in the growing season, but less so in winter. Misting the leaves with water will help keep the humidity levels high, as well as keeping the leaves dust-free. Repot in spring every couple of years and keep temperatures above 10°C in winter.
“Dracaenas are one of the top 2 in study by NASA into the best houseplants for clearing formaldehyde from the air often found in the home in fiberboard and plywood.”
