Light Dracena draco
Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. The Dracena draco is a pretty delicate plant, which fears minimum temperatures below 15°C; during late spring it can be cultivated outdoors.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.
Water Dracena draco

To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.
Pests 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.
