1 x 12cm Potted Plant
This twisted dark green foliage has bold lime green margins which make this house plant incredibly alluring! Each glossy leaf is curiously curled and twisted clockwise to display an amazing and eye-catching whirlpool effect. As a young plant Dracaena fragrans ‘Tornado’ has a low rounded shape that sits perfectly on a worktop or coffee table. With maturity, it eventually extends upwards to produce an upright central stem, which then makes a wonderful floor-standing specimen. This magnificent Dragon Tree is undemanding and easy to grow, which won’t get out of hand quickly as it has a relatively slow growth habit. It is an indoor plant that will adapt to a wide range of conditions making it even more versatile.
Keep a Dracaena plant in a warm room away from radiators and any cold draughts, ideally with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). For the optimum leaf colour, choose a bright position in a well-lit space, but away from the glare of the strong sun. Dracaena can also cope equally well in shade.
Water freely between the spring and autumn using tepid rainwater if possible, and allow the pot to drain well after each watering. In the winter months, reduce watering but do not allow the soil to dry out. Feed regularly between March and September when they are inactive growth. The lower leaves of Dracaena will naturally die back as the plant grows so just carefully remove them to maintain a tidy appearance.
Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 90cm (36").
