About Dracaena 'Lisa'

The protective resins inside this plant are in Dragon’s Blood, a bright red pigment, varnish, medicine, incense, and dye that has been used across ancient cultures for thousands of years. This plant rarely blooms, but when it does, its flower blooms at night and emits smells that attract night pollinators, like moths. 🦇

I’ve had this same plant since I was 12 years old. It’s moved across the states and back and still alive to this day. I’m 40 now. Can survive almost anything, it’s fallen over and spilled in a trailer during a move, accidentally was put out in the sun outside for 2 days and got sunburned, I mean all of the things. He’s still here. Hardiest plant I’ve ever owned, it’s gone a very long time without water (my bad, Robert). Highly recommend this houseplant for everyone.
