Best Locations For Growing Dragon Tree Twister Dracaena 

The attention-grabbing foliage of ‘Dragon Tree Twister’ makes it a perfect conversational piece for a living space. Give this plant medium to bright indirect light to thrive. This plant is fairly forgiving and will tolerate brief periods of low light. Keep in mind that this plant is toxic if ingested, so it should be kept away from pets and small children. 

Dragon Tree Twister Dracaena Sunlight Requirements

For this Dracaena to thrive, provide it with plenty of medium to bright light. Two or three feet away from an east- or west-facing window is ideal. This plant is able to adapt to low light conditions, but avoid direct sunlight as it might scorch the leaves.  

Dragon Tree Twister Dracaena Care

The Dracaena ‘Dragon Tree Twister’ can be pruned in spring or early summer to maintain the size. You can cut off the cane at any height. It will sprout new swirls where it was cut. You should repot this plant in the spring, only if the roots have filled the pot. Young plants may only need to be repotted every 2-3 years. For best results use a terracotta pot with a drainage hole to prevent overwatering.

Watering Dragon Tree Twister Dracaena 

Water your dragon tree when the top few inches of soil are dry. Depending on the climate where you live, this may be on a weekly or biweekly basis. This plant prefers moist, but not soggy soil. Overwatering causes root rot, one of the main reasons a Dracaena plant dies. If the leaves begin to turn yellow, try letting your plant dry out more between waterings. ‘Dragon Tree Twister’ prefers high humidity.

Feeding Dragon Tree Twister Dracaena 

You should feed this plant every month in the spring and summer with an all-purpose liquid fertilizer, diluted to half the recommended strength. Overfeeding may cause the tips of the leaves to turn brown.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
