DRAGON TREE

Botanical Name

Dracaena Draco.

Nickname

Dragon Tree, Draco Tree. 

Birthplace

Native to the Canary Islands, Madeira Cape Verde and locally in western Morocco. Dracaena Draco is the symbol of Tenerife Island.

Favourite Environment

Full sun. It is a good choice for coastal areas, since it tolerates wind and salty air.

Drinking
Preference

The Dracaena Draco doesn’t need special fertiliser or a lot of water. When you water it, you always want to water it as deeply as you can but not too often. The plant has a high drought tolerance, so if it lives outdoors, normal rainfall should suffice, and you may never need to water it. For grooming: Remove the withered leaves from the lower part of the plant to help expose more of the attractive trunk.
