Red Margined Dracaena – The Plant As Cool As Its Name

Dracaena plants are incredible. They range from red edged and trendy to your normal looking houseplants. What the quirky ones like me enjoy are dracaena plants with fun names. Since Generation Y looks for unique characteristics in everything, having houseplants like the Red Margined Dracaena around is a great way to help my generation fall in love with houseplants.

Let’s talk about Red Margined Dracaena (Dracaena marginata) alternate names for a moment. Shall we? Think about these when you’re looking for a new decoration for the house.

  • Red striped dracaena (sounds like a fast, sporty race car)
  • Red edged dracaena (why do I want a Red Bull now?)
  • Madagascar Dragon Tree (do I really have to elaborate?)

Red Edged Dracaena Houseplant

Now I grant you that nothing beats “Madagascar Dragon Tree” but give it up to Dracaena marginata for having several awesome names. It’s also one of the most popular dracaena plants for another reason. It bends.

I don’t mean that it bends like rubber. I mean that this tree can be shaped for a more unique appearance. It will grow in different directions or toward the light if handled properly. A plant with it’s own mind undergoing a growth spurt? What person wouldn’t find entertainment in that?

Just to top it all off, Dracaena marginata plant care is simple. I mean that. It’s easier than walking the dog or doing a load of dishes. Caring for your Dracaena marginata almost disqualifies itself as a chore based on the level of “easy” plant care. Basic plant care requirements for Red Edged Dracaena (Dracaena marginata) are thus:

  • Consistent temperature
  • Moderate watering
  • Bright filtered to low light

Basically, houseplant care can’t get much simpler than this. Water it a few times a week. Keep it away from drafts. It even tolerates low light of office buildings well! Really, can there be a better houseplant?
