Dragon tree

Who am I?
Hello, my name is Dracaena draco, but people also call me Dragon tree. I am a subtropical succulent tree species. When I am young I have a single trunk and no branches yet, but if you take good care of me my trunk will stop growing after 10 to 15 years and I will flower for the first time. My flowers are white and pointed and smell just like a lily, delicious! After this flowering phase I will branch for the first time, each branch grows again for 10 to 15 years and then branches again. Especially because I branch so slowly, most people only know me with only one trunk or branch, so I am more versatile than most think.

Where do I come from?
I find my origins in the Canary Islands, Cape Verde and Madeira, among others. So I am a real islander, nevertheless I still feel at home on the mainland!

How big will I get?
As you know by now I am a tree species and I can grow very tall. For example, the largest Dracaena draco, namely ‘Drago de Icod de los Vinos’ in Tenerife, is 16 meters high and has a diameter of almost 20 meters!

However, when potted, I won’t get that big and my growth will depend a lot on the size of the pot. By choosing a certain pot size, you can largely determine how big I will grow.

How much do I want to drink?
Being a succulent tree species, I am naturally not very thirsty. Be sure to let my soil dry out between waterings, but beware, I’m not a cactus!

Where do I want to be and what temperatures do I like?
Coming from a warm climate, I love warm temperatures! Make sure that my ambient temperature never falls below 10 degrees, but preferably not below 16. So living room temperature is perfect for me!
