    Key Information

    Other Common Names:

    Family: Asparagaceae

    Origin: Africa, southern Asia through to northern Australia

    Toxic: Keep away from pets and children.

    Plant Introduction

    The Dracaena Bicolour is a member of the Asparagaceae family (scientific name: Dracaena marginata 'Bi-Colour'). The Asparagaceae family is commonly referred to as the asparagus family. This family grouping of plants contains seven sub-families which roughly contain 2900 different species. Some of these species include plants like the Hyacinth, asparagus plant, and even the agave plant.

    This cultivar was created for its beautiful foliage and easy care. The Dracaena Bicolour also has the advantage of keeping its leaves longer than other members of the dragon trees, resulting in a slightly fuller plant.

    Dracaena Bi-Colour - Common Problems

    The young leaves are shedding and falling: This could be a sign of underwatering and lack of light. If this is the case, move your plant to a brighter location and change your watering routine. If the old leaves are shedding and falling, don’t be alarmed; this is a natural process that happens due to maturity.

    The tips of the leaves are turning yellow and brown: Dracaenas can be sensitive to tap water. If this continues, switch to using distilled water, rainwater, or set a glass of water out overnight to reduce the chlorine content. Ensure your watering routine is consistent.

    How often should I fertilize my Dracaena: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.

    Signs of Overwatering: Rapid leaf drop is usually a sign of overwatering.

    Common Pests: Spider mites, mealybugs, and fungus gnats
