Hardy dragon tree

Large, whimsical leaves. It is characteristic of this Dracaena steudneri. The leaves grow on thick, sturdy stems. It feels like you're in a fairy tale forest! Taking care of this houseplant is a piece of cake! Water the plant weekly. The Dracaena has a dormant period in November and December. During this period, the plant only needs to be watered occasionally. In the summer, you can start to water it more again. The leaves should also be sprayed occasionally. This prevents the leaf edges from drying out. The plant does like light, but not strong, midday sunshine. Morning and evening sunshine, however, are fine for the Dracaena. For a fairy tale in your living room!

Planting+
Upon receipt of your Steudner's dragon tree (Dracaena steudneri) you have several options:
  • Stand it in an attractive planter with holes in the base. Cover the holes with a layer of gravel or potsherds and stand the plant, complete with nursery pot on top. The planter will need to be stood in a dish to collect the drain off.
  • Pot it up into an attractive planter with holes in the base. Cover the holes with a layer of gravel or potsherds and add potting compost. Stand the root ball at the correct depth and fill the pot with compost around the roots. Press firmly down - leave a space of about 3 cm from the top edge of the pot. Stand the planter in a dish to collect the drain off.
  • Stand it in an attractive planter without holes but do layer the bottom of the pot with gravel so the plant's pot is off the bottom. A wide planter is best as then you can see whether or not the bottom of the pot is standing in water or not.
  • Or just stand the plant, nursery pot and all, on a dish - on a layer of gravel, or just directly on the dish.
Care+
Watering your Steudner's dragon tree (Dracaena steudneri) weekly will help it to grow well - add some plant food for leafy plants to the water fortnightly. Water 2x a week in the warm summer growing season but do wait until the compost feels dry to the touch. In November and December, Dracaena steudneri goes naturally into dormancy. During this time reduce watering, keep the plants on the dry side and stop feeding. Continue as before after the dormant period is past, feeding and watering.

In homes with a low humidity (< 50%) the plant will appreciate being sprayed once or twice a day. A chalky residue will show on leaves in areas with hard water so we advise using rainwater or cool, boiled water to spray.

As the plant generally grows towards the light, it is a good idea to give it a quarter turn every month - standing it, pot and all, on a wheeled base makes this easier of course.
Specifics+
Dracaena steudneri is a strong house plant that is easy to grow.

This Steudner's dragon tree originated in the tropics of Africa - from the Sudan to Mozambique and from Angola to the Ivory Coast. It is used in those regions as a decorative outdoor plant in public places but in temperate climes like ours the Dracena steudner makes a very popular house plant.

Dracena is classified under Asparagaceae.
