Who says dragons aren’t real? Like magic, I'm an indoor plant that will grow pretty quickly. I will only grow to the scale (pun intended) of the pot I’m in so if I stop growing, I may need an upgrade. Please feed me with water, not fire.  The Jardin Terrazzo Pot in Black also keeps me looking cool.

Key attributes

Gorgeous glossy green split-pattern leaves on a semi-climber plant that can be trained to grow up a totem or hang over the edges of a pot. Naturally the plant loves to grow laterally in a horizontal manner.

  • Bright, indirect, filtered sunlight.
  • Water moderately, allow the top 3cm of soil to dry.
  • Mostly safe, could cause digestive upset if ingested.

Your new Dragon Tail comes in two sizes and could grow up to 1m in height.

Medium: 10cm-20cm in height. Planted in a 140mm black nursery pot.

Large: 50cm-70cm in height. Planted in a 200mm black nursery pot on a Totem.

Care mode

Keep moist during the warmer month periods and generally drier during the winter cooler months. Fertilise in warmer months.

Feeding your indoor plants

To get the best out of your indoor plants, you will need to feed them some food. The Good Plant Co Indoor Plant Food will provide all the nutrients they need to grow more leaves and help them stay strong. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. During the slow growing season (cooler winter months) your plant doesn’t eat or drink as much (no extra winter layer of fat for these babies). Sometimes it’s ok to be a helicopter parent – respond to your plant’s needs. To keep the dust off your beautiful indoor plant leaves use The Good Plant Co Leaf Shine. Moral of the story, if it is growing new leaves then it will need more water and food!

We take great care in growing, packaging, and shipping your new plants so they’re ready to thrive in your home. This includes keeping them safe while they travel from our wholesale nursery to your doorstep.
