Caring for Draco

Light

Adaptable to low light situations. Also happy in brighter light, as long as its not direct.

Water & humidity

Water weekly to every 10 days. Allow top 50-75% of the soil to dry out before watering again.

Feeding

Feed every 1-2 months in summer with 1 sachet of organic Canola Meal

Re-potting

Only re-pot once every 1-2 years if necessary to one size up. They like to be root bound. Regular potting soil mixed with some cactus/succulent mix will work best.

Atrium Top Tip

Draco is a NASA approved Clean Air Plant. Wiping both the upper surfaces and undersides of the leaves with a damp cloth allows the plant to exchange air freely.

Quirky plant fact

Some Dragon Tree varieties can grow 100 feet tall in the wild, and are commonly found in dry, hot climates across Africa and South America.
