The Philodendron ‘Dragon Tail’ Story

Where is it from?
The Dragon Tail is native to China.

Who is the Philodendron ‘Dragon Tail’? 
This plant is a vining plant with extremely unique foliage. It requires staking as the plant grows larger.

Good For You!
Dragon Tails are a great addition to your bedroom. They create a calm, cozy environment and promotes a good nights sleep. Also, they are excellent air purifying plants! Filtering out airborne toxins such as trichloroethylene and benzene from the air.

Is the Philodendron ‘Dragon Tail’ the right plant for me?

Dragon Tail plants are fairly easy to care for. They prefer the top 2” of the soil to dry in between watering as they are quite susceptible to stem rot. Place your plant in a location with bright, indirect light or filtered bright light and watch it grow!

The large leaves are absolutely stunning but need a regular dusting to ensure it can photosynthesize at its optimal levels. 

Pet Friendly: Unfortunately, it is not pet-friendly.

Location Suggestions: We love Dragon Tails in locations with large spaces so it can grow to its full potential, especially in living rooms and bedrooms.
