Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Twisting dark green foliage with bold lime green margins make this house plant incredibly alluring! Each glossy leaf is curiously curled and twisted clockwise to create a fabulous whirlpool effect. As a young plant Dracaena fragrans ‘Tornado’ has a low rounded shape that sits nicely on a worktop or coffee table. With maturity it gradually extends upwards to form an upright central stem, making a fine floor-standing specimen. This magnificent Dragon Tree is undemanding and easy to grow, with a relatively slow growth habit. A well behaved, indoor plant for that will adapt to a wide range of conditions. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 90cm (36").

Position Dracaena plants in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). For the best leaf colour, choose a bright position in good light, but away from the glare of strong sun. Dracaena thrives in a wide range of light levels, coping equally well in shade.
Water freely between spring and autumn using rainwater where possible, and allow the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to dry out. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. The lower leaves of Dracaena will naturally die back as the plant grows. These should be carefully removed, to maintain a tidy appearance.
