Buy Dracaena marginata 'Sunray' (PBR) dragon tree: A colourful, yet undemanding house plant

  • Position: bright filtered light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average

    This easy-going house plant won’t take up too much space, so it's ideal for brightening up a hallway or filling an empty corner. Each of its slender leaves has a bright yellow band running down its length, which is encased with a rich green border, so (as the name suggests) the overall effect is a bit like a sunray!

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water well in the growing season, but less so in winter. Misting the leaves with water will help keep the humidity levels high, as well as keeping the leaves dust-free. Repot in spring every couple of years and keep temperatures above 10°C in winter.
