Dragon Tails and Moss Poles
#DragonTailPlant #MossPole

I noticed that my Dragon Tail was beginning to rather distinctly curve down the side of it's pot, so I looked into it and discovered that Dragon Tails are climbing plants! As I have recently learned about moss poles, I was excited to see that is something you can do with Dragon Tails.

Can I still use a moss pole with my Dragon Tail when it is this size (the pot is 8 inches wide and 7 inches tall)? Or is it too late? If not, how do I go about doing that?

With Rhaphidophora decursiva plants, it’s best to start training them to climb while they’re still young, because their stems are super hardy and thick! But luckily, your plant is definitely still young. It’s not too late at all! You can absolutely use a moss pole right now. I would recommend just gently using some soft plant velcro to help support the stems in a somewhat upright position on the pole. As long as you keep the pole fairly moist, it should grow aerial roots and start trending upwards in no time!
