Dracaena Facts


There are good reasons why Dracaenas are so popular & it's not just because they're so attractive.

1) Dracaenas are slow growers.  There's no need to worry if the plant is going to out-grow its space too soon.

2)  They require less water than many other plants.  If you travel a lot, a Dracaena may be a good choice for you.

3)  These beauties tend to grow upwards rather than wide so they fit in locations where other plants may not.

4)  Dracaenas can grow indefinitely.  If they become taller than you want, you can cut them back and they'll branch out.

5)  Dracaenas with darker green leaves and the popular "corn plant" can tolerate lower light than others.

There are over 40 varieties of Dracaena!
