Exotic Red Color + Green Fronds on Braided Trunk
Why Braided Madagascar Dragon Trees?
With a braided stem and tropical green fronds, the Braided Madagascar Dragon Tree is a bold house plant that delivers tropical good looks. Plus, the Madagascar's fronds boast a dark red outline for even more contrast, giving it its nickname: The Red-Edge Dracaena.
And whether it's used as an accent or tall floor plant, it thrives. The Dragon Tree's upright, tree-like habit can even be used to provide privacy in front of windows. Plus, its braided trunk, often boasting 4 to 5 separate textural stalks os one-of-a-kind.
Even better is the fact that its island-inspired looks are easy-growing. Simply place in front of a sunny window, water, and watch the growth take off.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: In the winter months, the Braided Madagascar Dragon Tree enjoys bright light, and in the warmer spring and summer seasons, it does well with indirect light and dappled shade.
When you're ready to repot, select a container that's about twice the width of your plant's shipped container and ensure it has drainage holes. Use organic planting mix, place your tree, and water to settle your plant's roots.
2. Watering: Keep your soil consistently moist but not soggy. A good rule of thumb is to put your finger in the soil to check its level of moisture, and only water when you have a full inch of dryness starting from the top of the soil.
