Other Name: Dragon Tree
Scientific Name: Dracaena Marginata
Native: Central Africa
A houseplant that is quickly growing in popularity because of its ease of growth and its sculptural silhouette that works excellently in modern interiors. As with most Dracaenas, this one too requires a well-drained soil and strong light to grow well. It can be grown in high ambient lighting indoors, and semi shade or full sun outdoors. Hardy and pest-resistant. Its stems are flexible and amenable to tree art. A very low maintenance plant. Container friendly. Available in light green, dark green and red colors. Colors of choice are sent only if in stock.
*Highly rated as an airpurifier when placed indoors.
**Sold in a small 3.5"/one liter plastic container (plant will be 2 to 4 feet tall) or in a large 5"/1.5 liter plastic container (plant will be 4-5 feet tall)
***All our plants are grown in organically enriched living soil without the use of any chemical fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides.
GROWING: Re-pot in a larger container or grow in-ground to increase root and foliage growth. Grow separately as this plant is quite demanding of soil/water resources. Trim off old, drying leaves from time to time and add this as shredded foliage around your plant to increase humus and soil health.
LIGHT: If growing indoors, place in a bright spot with exposure to indirect sunlight/ambient light for at least six hours daily. If growing outdoors, place in semi-shade as exposure to strong direct sunlight will burn the leaves of this plant.
WATERING: Alternate days in summer and twice a week rest of the year. Allow soil to dry out completely between watering events. Never let its roots sit in stagnant water. If growing indoors, ensure that drip trays are emptied regularly.
FERTILIZING: Our plants are sold in organically enriched, NPK+MagSulf strong, potting mixes that would need no additional soil amendments for at least one year. If re-potting/migrating to a larger container, we recommend the use of Mandy's Farm Foliage Plant Potting Mix or one similar to it.
