Spike belongs to the Dragon Plant (Draceana) family, of which some plants produce a blood-red resin, hence the name 'Dragon Blood Tree'. We love Spike's rich green leaves edged in burgundy. He's not only a looker, but you really don't have to fuss over him at all. Draceanas tolerate poor light conditions and little watering - all the while being air-purifying machines! Available Gauteng only.

Comes in a 30cm grow pot. Height of plant: approx 100 - 110cm from the ground. Decorative pot sold separately.


Flat shipping rates apply per order (add more plants & pay the same on shipping). Gauteng R79. Rest of South Africa R119. Read our shipping policy here.

Caring for Spike

Light

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

Water & humidity

Water weekly to every second week in winter. Do not overwater this plant, it needs the soil to dry at least 50% of the way down before watering again. Dragon Plants originate from hot dry regions and store water in their thick trunks.

Feeding

Feed every 1-2 months in summer.

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 with cactus/succulent mix will work best.

Atrium Top Tip

Draco is a NASA approved Clean Air Plant, removing formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene and carbon dioxide. - chemicals linked with several health problems. Regularly wipe the dust off both the upper surfaces and undersides of the leaves with a damp cloth to allow 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.
