DescriptionDracaena draco is an evergreen long lived tree with a smooth bark that evolves to a more rough texture as it ages.The “dragon tree” is a monocot, with a branching growth pattern currently placed in the asparagus family (asparagaceae, subfamily nolinoidae). When young it has a single stem. At about 10–15 years of age the stem stops growing and produces a flower spike with white, lily-like perfumed flowers, followed by coral berries. Soon a crown of terminal buds appears and the plant starts branching. Each branch grows for about 10–15 years and re-branches, so a mature plant has an umbrella like habit. It grows slowly, requiring about 10 years to reach 1.2 Meters (4 ft) in height, but can grow much faster. The lighting requirement of the dragon tree should be on the full shade to part shade. However, the bright indirect light is the ideal choice when it comes to the lighting requirement of the plant. The soil requirement of the madagascar dragon tree dracaena draco is a well drained and airy soil type with peat moss. The soil should be on a ph level of slightly acidic to neutral level to achieve the optimal soil condition required for the plant. These levels are essential to give the plant total growth and prevent the draco from infections. The dracaena draco requires a medium amount of water. Despite being drought resistant and highly vulnerable to plant diseases, the plant should not be overwatered or underwatered. Mineral salts from chemical fertilizers are Toxic to your dracaenas, so avoid them at all costs! In the spring and summer, use a water-soluble fertilizer diluted to 50% strength once a month.
