thinking the plant will grow to large. Don't worry... it takes
years for Dracaena Spikes to mature. Most "Spikes" that you'll

the right size to be planted in your mixed containers.
and very hardy plant can be grown at any light level. Dracaena
drought tolerant too! Plant in any well drained soil. Feed
bi-weekly if planted in a container with other plants. If your
Dracaena spikes is in its own pot, feed it monthly with a balanced
plant food while actively growing.
At the end of the growing season
"Spikes" can be moved indoors for the winter. After many
years of moving the plant in for the winter... out for the summer,
it is possible to grow a large specimen tree. In it's native
habitat in the mountains of New Zealand, Dracaena indivisa can reach
heights over 20 feet!
