Whether you’re injecting some life into a corner spot or making it a centrepiece, the Natural Dragon Tree is a fabulous, eye-catching addition to any house plant family.

As a natural air-purifier, the Natural Dragon Tree works hard to detoxify your home and reduce formaldehyde levels in the air.

Natural Dragon Tree - Care Practices

  • Light: Bright indirect light. Leaves are sensitive and can burn easily from direct light or hot dry temperatures.
  • Water: Water thoroughly and remove excess water. Do not allow the soil to completely dry out.
  • Humidity: Prefers higher levels of humidity - invest in a humidifier for best results.
  • Temperature: Comfortable in consistent room temperature, usually from 18°C to 24°C
  • Fertilizer: For best results, use a water soluble fertilizer mix (20-20-20) once a month.
  • Soil: Standard soil that allows for moisture retention and adequate drainage to prevent over watering.
  • Propagation: Stem cuttings or air layering in spring, or seeds before the first frost in winter.
  • Repotting: Can be done every 12-18 months. Spring, summer and early fall are the best times for repotting.
  • Cleaning Tip: Remove dry or damaged leaves by gently pulling them off.
  • Toxicity: Mildly toxic, can irritate your pet’s stomach if ingested.

Natural Dragon Tree - Common Problems

Why does my Dragon Tree have dry patches/streaks on its leaves?

This may be due to too much direct sunlight, which can cause scorching or color fading. 

I haven’t put my Dragon Tree in the sun but it still looks burnt!

This is likely a sign of overfertilization, as the roots can burn from excessive salt build-up. Try using your fertilizer less frequently or at quarter strength for different results.

Why are my Dragon Tree’s leaf tips yellow?

This could also be a reaction to overfertilization, or alternatively, too much fluoride present in tap water - Dragon Trees are very sensitive to nutrition inadequacies, so be mindful of the type of water you feed it on a regular basis. Try collecting rainwater and watering with that instead. 

Signs of Overwatering: Root rot, browning, leaf drop, soft leaves/trunk

Common Pests: Check for mealy bugs, scale, and spider mites. 

What is the best environment for this plant?

Dragon Trees will thrive best in medium, indirect light, making them great indoor plants for homes and office spaces.
