Esta planta me lo compré la primera vez que mi madre me llevó a Ikea. Tenía trece o catorce años, muchas hormonas locas y ya me gustaba todo lo natural, las flores, los aceites, las plantitas…  .

Pues de alguna manera aquella tarde sigue conmigo, pues aquella planta es la misma que decora el piso donde ahora vivo. Su nombre científico es Dracaena Marginata o Dragon Tree.

Los consejos para cuidarla:

  1. Ubicarla en un sitio que no le de la luz directa del sol, pero sí en un área luminosa.
  2. Igual que el ficus, regarla una vez a la semana es suficiente – tocar la arena antes y regarla siempre que esté seca -.
  3. Regularmente, pasar un trapo húmedo por las hojas, para extraer el polvo y mantenerla “limpia” y sana.

My mother bought me this plant the first time she took me to Ikea. I was 16, I had many foolish hormones and I already liked everything natural, flowers, oils, seedlings… .

Somehow the memory of that evening is still with me, because that plant is the same that decorates the apartment where I live now. Its scientific name is Dracaena marginata or Dragon Tree.

Tips to take care of the Dragon Tree plant:

  1. Place the pot in an area low in natural light. Do not place it in an area where the sun strikes directly, especially in the afternoon, but keep them out of dark corners.
  2. Like the ficus, watering it once a week is enough – wait until the top of the soil is dry to the touch before watering again -.
  3. Regularly wipe the leaves with a damp cloth. This helps both to remove dust and to keep the leaves fresh.
