8 inch: Thanks to its tolerance for a wide range of temperatures, Dracaena is very popular as a large potted plant for homes and offices. It should be planted in a loamy, well-draining soil amended with peat moss and watered regularly during the growing season. Best exposure will be a location with lots of indirect light; it will tolerate shadier locations but the leaves will lose some of their bright green color. They are listed by NASA as an excellent plant for removing harmful chemicals from the air. Watering should be slightly restricted during the winter.
Dragon trees grow best in bright light but they can also survive in dim light. Plants in lower light situations will grow slower and will produce smaller leaves with less intense color. Don't put your dragon tree in full sun, which can burn its leaves.
