Often mistaken for a palm tree, I am actually a relation of the Yucca. I'm hardy, durable and an awesome air purifier. Tall and slim, I create an indoor garden easily in any space.

Compared to other Dracaenas, the Marginata Magenta’s leaves are thinner. It has a grey-brown bark that can produce other stems so occasional pruning is needed.

How to Care for the Dragon Tree 'Magenta' 

  • The Dragon Tree Magenta prefers light shade. It will thrive in a bright room but keep it away from direct sunlight. 
  • Water it enough to keep the soil always moist, but not wet. 
  • Mist it often to keep humidity and to help remove any dust that may fall on to the leaves. 
  • Feed it in the warmer months monthly, reducing the frequency as the weather gets colder. 
  • Avoid temperatures under 10ºC. This plant will prefer a range between 16 and 24ºC. 
  • Its roots grow quite fast but the plant will not need to be reported more than once every 2 years as they can do well with very little root room. 
  • Any old leaves that are ready to fall can be removed. You can cut back its stems to maintain its size.
