These dynamic plants add tropical energy to your space with rosettes of spiky foliage in a variety of colours and shapes that explode from thick, upright stems. They are low maintenance and drought tolerant, and with over 40 cultivated varieties, you’re sure to find a favourite.

 how this nature nurtures you 

They boost the oxygen levels in our home while removing toxins from the air. 

Known as Dragon Trees in Ancient Greece, the red sap was used in ceremonies to promote strength and endurance. The dracaena’s ability to survive through droughts and poor soil conditions remind us that sometimes we must endure hardship to create positive change.

 how to nurture your nature 


The forests of Africa, Asia and Australia.


Water thoroughly, then let soil dry out 50-75% before repeating.


They will thrive in low or indirect light.


They aren’t picky. Regular room temperature (17-24 degrees celsius) or warmer.


They appreciate occasional misting, but don’t require it.


Non-toxic to humans, but toxic to animals.


Feed every month in the spring and summer with an all purpose fertilizer.  Apply to damp soil so you don't burn the roots.  


Dracaenas are sensitive to the minerals and chemicals in tap water. To avoid brown leaf tips, use distilled or rain water.

I love Amanda from Planterina's videos.  Here's a video all about Dracaena care:
