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.
