pot: Without pot
Dracaena Marginata is a structural tree with a tropical look. Marginatas are drought tolerant and flexible on lighting, and brighter light will bring out its subtle red undertones. Also known as a "Dragon Tree," this houseplant develops lots of distinctive character over time.
Bright indirect is best - Okay with a touch of direct sun - Very tolerant of low light
Water when top 1/2 of soil is dry
Air Purifying - Absorbs pollutants, filters formaldehyde, benzene and more from the air
Not Pet Friendly - Avoid ingesting
Sits 4-5.5' tall by 2.5'-3' wide with 3-4+ heads, in 10" grow pot
Although drought tolerant, this plant will start to look crispy or even drop leaves if left to dry for too long. These are also some of the least low-light tolerant of the Dracaena genus, and require bright indirect light to do their best growing.
Native to Madagascar. Dracaena Marginata is one of the plants that performed the best in NASA's famous 1989 Clean Air Study, being proficient at absorbing formaldehyde, toluene, and benzene. While Marginatas ultimately didn't replace air filters in space, they remain a popular houseplant to this day.
