The Ultimate Guide to Taking Care of Dragon Tree Houseplants

Dragon Tree

Do you want to bring some life and color into your home? Consider adding a dragon tree houseplant if this is the case. The dragon tree is a low-maintenance houseplant that looks great in any room. Plus, its distinct leaves will make you feel as if you have your own castle in your living room! Continue reading to learn everything you need to know about caring for a dragon tree houseplant.

Light Requirements

The dragon tree is ideal for homes with low light levels because it does not require direct sunlight to thrive. However, indirect bright light is best for this plant because too much shade can cause the leaves to become limp and weak. For best results, place your dragon tree near an east or west facing window. Avoid south-facing windows because the sun's rays may be too strong for your plant.

Water Requirements

When it comes to watering, you don't want to let the soil completely dry out between waterings, but you also don't want it to be too wet. Stick your finger up to the second knuckle in the soil and if it feels dry, water your plant; if it still feels damp, wait a few days before checking again. If you live in a humid climate or have morning dew on your plants every day, you may only need to water your plants once every two weeks or so.

Fertilizing Requirements 

Fertilize your dragon tree houseplant every three months with a half-diluted balanced liquid fertilizer. This will provide your plant with all of the nutrients it requires for healthy growth and vibrant foliage colors—but don't overdo it, as this may cause leaf burn or other nutrient deficiencies due to a nutrient imbalance in the soil.

Dragon trees are stunning houseplants that will transform any room into a castle! These plants can thrive in almost any environment with just a little care and attention—no sunlight required! Follow our instructions above and watch your dragon tree grow into something magnificent! Happy gardening!
