Dracaena marginata(dragon tree) has thinner, grass-like leaves that fountain off of multiple thick stems.

 Light

Some Dracaenas  will grow in low light, but most other varieties - like the Dragon Tree - thrive in filtered, bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can damage the leaves, unless the plant was originally grown in direct sun.

Water

Dracaenas have a reputation for not needing a lot of water. True, but they need a thorough soaking when the soil dries out! Remember -- all plants need water! Dracaenas planted in a six-inch pot should be watered when the soil is dry four inches below the top. Use filtered water, rainwater, or distilled water, as these plants don’t like salts or minerals. Dracaenas prefer dry soil; soggy soil promotes fungus and root rot.

Temperature

The ideal temperatures for Dracaenas are those above 65℉. Sudden coldness can damage the leaves, so keep them away from drafty doors and windows during the colder months.

Humidity

Dracaena house plants benefit from higher humidity levels during summer, or when they’re in heated, forced-air environments.
