The Dragon Tree Plant, also known as the Madagascar Dragon Tree or by its scientific name Dracaena, is most often grown indoors as a houseplant. The tropical plant does best naturally under canopies and in extremely dry conditions. This being the case, the plant is extremely hardy and makes bold and strong foliage. The Dragon Tree Plant is also easily trained, making it easy to arrange by wiring around stems. In what follows, you'll find out the right care methods for the Dragon Tree Plant.
The Dragon Tree Plant does best in moderate and low lighting conditions. If you place the plant near natural light, make sure a shade or curtain comes between the plant and the sun. The plant cannot take on any frost and can't get below 30 F, which clearly shouldn't be a problem when kept indoors. Still, if you leave yours outdoors for any extended period, you'll need to bring it in or overwinter it in a greenhouse. If the plant falls out of the 60-80 F range, it will likely drop its leaves and lose much of its appeal. You don't have to water your dragon tree that much; in fact, the easiest way to kill it is to overwater. Once a week should be more than enough. Let the soil dry out all the way before you water, but make sure you're getting proper drainage with loose potting sol. You want to keep the plant as humid as you can; for this reason, it may be well placed in a laundry room or bathroom, or just near the humidifier if you use one. If you want bolder leaves, feel free to use a light fertilizer, but not more than once a month or so. That's really all it takes it keep your dragon tree plant happy!
