Planting Instructions

  1. Timing: Sow Dracaena draco seeds in spring or early summer when temperatures are warm and consistent.
  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining soil, such as a sandy or loamy mix. Ensure the planting site has good drainage to prevent waterlogging.
  3. Sowing Depth: Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep in moist soil. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged during the germination period.
  4. Sunlight: Provide full sun to partial shade. Dragon Trees thrive in bright, sunny locations but can tolerate some shade.
  5. Temperature: Dracaena draco prefers warm temperatures and can tolerate heat. Protect young plants from frost.

Growing and Care

    • Watering: Water young plants regularly to establish roots. Once established, water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
    • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to support growth. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can harm the plant.
    • Pruning: Prune dead or damaged leaves to maintain a tidy appearance. Minimal pruning is required for overall shape.
    • Pest and Disease Management: Monitor for pests such as spider mites or mealybugs and treat as necessary with appropriate insecticidal soap or horticultural oil.
