The Dracena draco develops like a tree. The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development. This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is small in size and can reach 7 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.
Exposure Dracena draco
For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Dracena draco in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Dracena draco needs a minimum temperature superior to 15°C, during this time of the year it is best to check the night temperatures before setting it outside.Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.
Watering Dracena draco
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.
Treatments Dracena draco
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Soil Dracena draco
These apartment plants favour very well drained soils.
