12" Dracaena Marginata (Dragon Tree)

$249.99

Dracaena Marginata, commonly known as the Dragon Tree or Madagascar Dragon Tree, is a popular houseplant known for its striking appearance and easy care. Here are some tips for caring for Dracaena Marginata:

1. Light: Place your Dracaena Marginata in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially morning sunlight, but avoid intense, hot afternoon sun which can scorch its leaves.

2. Watering: Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly when you do water, ensuring the excess water drains away. Avoid letting the plant sit in water as it can lead to root rot.

3. Humidity: Dracaena Marginata can adapt to normal indoor humidity levels. It doesn't require high humidity but benefits from occasional misting, especially in dry indoor environments.

4. Temperature: It prefers temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid placing it near drafts or heating/cooling vents that could cause temperature fluctuations.

5. Soil: Use well-draining potting mix suitable for indoor plants. A mix formulated for tropical plants or a combination of potting soil, perlite, and sand works well.

6. Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization in fall and winter when growth slows.

7. Pruning: Trim off any yellow or dead leaves to maintain the plant's appearance and health. Pruning can also encourage new growth.

8. Repotting: Dracaena Marginata prefers slightly root-bound conditions, so repot only when the roots have filled the current container. Repot in spring using fresh potting mix.

9. Pests: Watch for spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Treat promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil if pests are detected.


By following these care tips, you can keep your Dracaena Marginata healthy and thriving as an attractive addition to your indoor space.
