About Dragon Tree

History

Europeans have been using corn plants as indoor trees since the 1800s. Corn plants are part of the Dracaena genus which, includes over 120 species. The largest member of the genus is Dracaena draco which can grow 25 feet tall and wide.

Cultivation

In its native Madagascar, Dracaena marginata can grow up to 20 feet tall. Small, fragrant, white flowers bloom in spring and are followed by orange fruits. Like its relative Dracaena fragrans, the Dragon tree was also identified in NASA's Clean Air Study as a plant that can remove the indoor pollutants formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene from the air.

Care

Dragon trees are hardy plants that can tolerate a little neglect and a range of growing conditions. To thrive, they prefer being kept in a bright location, with high humidity and need watering when their soil has dried out. However, they can also tolerate lower light levels, although growth may be a little weaker.

Did you know?

The name Dracaena is derived from a Greek word meaning female dragon. The Dragon tree was given this name due to the sticky red sap that oozes from the stems when they are cut.

Toxicity

If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.

False Palm; Madagascar Dragon Tree; Dragon Blood Tree
