Dracaena surculosa 'gold dust' (dragon tree)

Size

Brighten your space with the lush green oval leaves of this easy to grow dragon plant. The clumps of stems give the Dracaena surculosa an oriental feel and in time the leaves will develop a pattern of yellowish green freckles which is where the name 'gold dust' comes from.

Please note, the planter is not included.  

Watering

Water regularly and thoroughly so the water reaches the plant’s deeper roots. Allow the top soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period.

Light requirements

Requires plenty of indirect light but may suffer if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves.

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows. 
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust.
  • Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close the next stem or the base of the plant as possible.
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth).
