The Dracaena Marginatas can be found throughout tropical areas of Africa, Southern Asia and Northern Australia. Because they evolved to grow under the canopies of lush, green jungles they do very well in low light as well as drought-like conditions. Starting out at around 12 to 18 inches high, the Dracaena Marginata can grow up to 4 to 5 feet tall!
Remember to keep your plant out of direct sunlight as the sun can actually burn the leaves and even bleach their striking green color. A good rule of thumb when thinking about the watering schedule is to wait until the top 1 inch of soil is completely dry to water, which ends up being about once a month.
Tips: Brown leaves can indicate over watering or too much direct sunlight. The biggest threat to the Dracaena is root rot caused from over watering.
