The Dracaena also called dragon’s blood tree, originated in West Africa. The plants have been exported to Europe since the 17th century. They are known as the most air-purifying plants. The Dracaena surculosa ‘Mike’ is the yellow-ish variety of the ‘normal’ dark surculosa.
Pot size: 12 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 35 cm (without the pot)
All Dracaena surculosa are very easy to maintain. The plant needs little light and will therefore also grow well in the somewhat darker places in the house. This also makes the plant very suitable for interior planting in companies and offices. In most cases, plants with variegated leaves need more light, but the surculosa “Mike” and does not. They can also be put in a slightly dark place. Do not place the plants in direct sunlight, or they will burn.
The surculosa is a warm houseplant, which means that they hate the cold. They thrive between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius.
Let the soil dry out thoroughly before watering again
If the plant grows too high, it can easily be pruned back. The cut top will branch and regrow
