The Dracena marginata is also known as Dragon tree, popular for its exotic colourful foliage. This is a common houseplant due to its hassle-free nature.
The Dracena marginata is a member of the Asparagaceae family and is sometimes called as the Dragon plant. They are very popular as houseplants because they need minimum care to grow and are very forgiving to less than suitable environmental conditions.
These plants have vigorous root systems and beautiful foliage. This plant with stiff leaves is often seen in offices due to their hassle-free nature and sophisticated appearance.
Despite their beautiful appearance, it should be noted that Dracena Marginata is extremely poisonous to cats and dogs. Therefore they should be planted with appropriate caution.
These plants are completely hassle-free. They are very forgiving and can survive almost any adverse condition.
It should be noted that the plant is sensitive to fluorides. Therefore, it should be watered using distilled water only which is free from any fluorides.
Dracena marginata survives best in medium light or partial shade. They should not be exposed to full sunlight as the direct rays of the sunlight burn the leaves. However, plants kept completely in shade tend to grow slower. The plants should be kept in a warm and well-lit part of the garden or room.
The plants should be watered in moderate amounts. They should only be watered when the almost half of the soil from the top is dry.
Care should be taken that the water is free from any kind of fluorides as the plants are highly sensitive to fluorides.
The plants should be planted in a loose soil with good drainage quality.
Repotting is necessary for this plant once in every couple of years as the plant has a vigorous root system. Gardeners should put fresh soil in the new pot during repotting.
Any organic fertilizer will work with this plant. They are not too fussy about fertilizers because they are pretty strong plants and they do not need support grow.
These plants are used mainly for ornamental purposes due to their beautiful foliage.
