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.
Temperatures Dracena draco
For a balanced development of the the Dracena draco it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Dracena draco is grown at home or in a warmed green house; during the Spring it can be moved outside, but only if the mimimum temperatures are clearly mild.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.
Irrigation Dracena draco
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.
Adversity 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.
Substrate Dracena draco
These apartment plants favour very well drained soils.
