Dracaena marginata for Sale Online
Dracaena marginata, also known as Madagascar Dragon Tree, is a tall, slender house plant that cleans the air indoors. Dragon Plant has sword-like leaves that are deep green with red borders and multi-stem growth. These tall indoor plants prefer evenly saturated soil that is not overly moist or allowed to dry.
When placed indoors, this clean air plant will remove chemicals such as formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene, and carbon monoxide. Dracaena prefers temperatures between 70° to 80°F so lightly shaded patios, porches, pool decks, and sunrooms are ideal for this tropical indoor plant.
Ideal care for these fun little indoor trees includes bright indirect light conditions and watering when the soil is dry. Your Dragon Tree would also appreciate a well draining potting mix and the application of a well-balanced fertilizer in the growing months of spring and summer.
The dark green leaves of Dragon Trees are slender and arc slightly, creating a very graceful form. Their tolerance of a wide range of conditions makes them an excellent choice for first-time houseplant owners. Additionally, these plants are fairly slow growing so they will not quickly overwhelm a space. The unique houseplants can grow up to 20 feet tall outdoors, but when grown indoors they should only reach about 6 feet tall.
Dracaena Marginatas' wild foliage makes a bold statement and is a favorite among interior designers and decorators looking to add some island flair to your home interior. Other varieties are green, red, yellow, white, and usually a mix of several colors. Dragon Trees can be trained to have a clear trunk or kept shorter as a bush with leaves from the top of the plant to the soil.
