This popular houseplant is native to tropical environments originating in Madagascar and other Indian Ocean islands. The resin on its stem is historically likened to dragon blood, hence where the name Dracaena came from! Availability may vary.



Your dracaena plant will thrive with bright, indirect sunlight. Too much direct sunlight will cause its leaves to burn.


Dracaenas require less water than most tropical plants. Allow the top soil to dry between waterings, and water thoroughly until it drains through the bottom hole. Yellow leaves can indicate overwatering, but it is normal for dracaenas to shed their lower leaves to make room for new ones. These plants prefer a humid environment through misting or a humidity tray.
