About Twister Dragon
The protective resins inside cornstalk dracaena 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. 🦇

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Twister Dragon after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
My cornstalk dracaena grew so fast! I bought it when it was a baby, and it can’t have been more than a year or two, but it’s absolutely whopping. Lovely leaves that make for such a gorgeous environment, grows tall and strong and didn’t even brown or come close to failing when I forgot to water it. Such a good boy, I’m so proud of him. A good listener too :)
