Dragon Tree


Category: Tag:


I’m the Dragon Tree. I resemble that of a mini tree with my thick and woody cane. I’m a houseplant on the taller side but I am one of the easiest plants to care for and am very durable. My long green leaves are trimmed with red and great for adding an elegant tropical vibe to your home. My leaves are great at cleaning the air so place me next to where you sleep so I can best help care for you.
