Dragon Tail Plant – 4″


Out of stock

The Dragon Tail is a rare species of flowering plant in the family of Araceae and is native to French Polynesia. The Dragon Tail can climb by means of aerial roots which adhere to surfaces. Young leaves are elliptical to arrow-shaped with entire margins.

Mature leaves up to 30-50cm long are thick and leathery and are deeply incised along the margins and can resemble a Monstera leaf. Third picture on listing demonstrates how leaves will begin to split. Because of its hardiness and low maintenance, this makes it a popular choice for beginner gardeners looking for entry into rare plants

Light: The Dragon Tail grows well in bright, indirect sunlight but will also tolerate low light conditions.

Water: Dragon Tails are drought tolerant and don’t require a lot of water. Allow the top layer of soil to dry between waterings. Wait until the top 2-3cm centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out before watering heavily. Water less in in the cooler month to replicate the tropical dry season.

Pets: Not pet-friendly!
