Dracaena marginata, commonly known as the Madagascar dragon tree or red-edged dracaena, is a popular houseplant prized for its striking appearance and ease of care. Here's some key info about it:

  1. Appearance: Dracaena marginata features long, slender, arching leaves with red or pink edges. The leaves are typically green, but some cultivars may have a reddish or purplish hue.

  2. Care: This plant is relatively low-maintenance and can thrive in a variety of indoor conditions. It prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light levels. Watering should be done when the top inch of soil feels dry, and it's important not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot.

  3. Propagation: Dracaena marginata can be propagated through stem cuttings. Simply cut a section of stem (with at least a few inches of length), allow it to dry out for a day or two, and then plant it in a well-draining potting mix. Keep the soil lightly moist until roots develop.

  4. Toxicity: Like many plants in the Dracaena genus, Dracaena marginata is considered toxic to cats and dogs if ingested. It can cause symptoms such as vomiting and drooling, so it's best to keep it out of reach of pets.

  5. Air-purifying qualities: Along with its aesthetic appeal, Dracaena marginata is known for its ability to help purify indoor air by removing toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene.

  6. Growth: With proper care, Dracaena marginata can grow quite tall over time, reaching heights of several feet. Regular pruning can help maintain its size and shape.
