Detailed Care Guide
Light: Grows best in bright indirect light but can also tolerate partial shade.
Water: Water once in two weeks. Let the top 1 inch of soil dry between waterings.
Pet-friendly: The plant is toxic if ingested.
Humidity: Below 60% humidity is best. Regular household humidity should be fine. But if your house is relatively too dry then mist the tree every few days.
Temperature: Temperatures between 70℉-80℉ are best.
Fertilizer: Feed in the beginning of spring for outstanding boost. Use a balanced ratio liquid fertilizer. However, the Dragon Tree grows just fine even without fertilizer.
Repotting: Since these trees are not fast-growing they require repotting every 2 to 3 years. You can refresh the soil annually to get rid of any packed soil. Choose a well-draining loamy potting mix. Choose a pot not larger than 2 inches than the original.
Yellowing tips: This can be caused by too much fertilization. If you haven't been feeding the plant but still face the problem then you may be watering your plant with chemically treated tap water. Use filtered water and the original colors of your tree will return.
Drooping Leaves: Dracaena marginata is a hardy and drought-resistant plant. It doesn't require much watering. Over watering can cause its leaves to droop. To avoid this check the soil before watering. If the upper 25% of the soil feels dry to touch then water it otherwise wait a few days.
