A Dracaena plant grows best in medium light. In low light these plants barely grow at all, tend to lose leaves from bottom to top, and are easily over-watered. Rotate dracaenas so that they don’t grow toward the light and lose their beautiful shape
Avoid direct sunlight to burn the plant leaves.
|Watering Frequency Watering Freq.||
Usually requires watering around once a week. Check the soil at a depth of about 1 inch. If the soil feels dry, the plant needs water. Water the plant deeply and evenly until water drains out through the bottom of the pot or the soil appears dark on the surface. Deep watering once or twice a week works best for Madagascar dragon trees in pots, but plants in the ground may require it less often. Reduce watering in the late fall and winter, and allow the soil to dry out completely between applications. Occasional watering prevents the leaves from dropping, but too much water can cause rot. As a rule of thumb, allow the plant to dry out a little between waterings. When the soil surface is dry to the touch – water the plant thoroughly and allow the excess water to exit through the drainage holes.

The Dracaena is one popular plant for indoor use, but outdoors as well. In general, the marginata is rugged and carefree as an indoor plant adding a tropical appearance to any room it graces.The leaves with red to purple stripes running along the edge find themselves sitting atop long slender “canes.” As new leaves emerge the oldest mature leaves yellow and fall off. When marginata is grown for indoor use fields of “stock” plants are planted and the growing tips or long thin stems called “canes” are cut and rooted in a well-drained soil. The rooted plants are planted into a variety of forms and grown on for use as a houseplant or for use in commercial applications by interiorscapers or plantscapers.
