Dracaena 'Tornado' Description

Dracaena 'Tornado' features long, narrow leaves that curl and twist around the stem, giving the plant its tornado-like appearance. The leaves are a rich green color, often with lighter green to yellow variegation running through the center. This architectural plant can serve as a captivating focal point in any room, combining both aesthetic appeal and functional benefits.

Care Plan for Dracaena 'Tornado'

Light: Dracaena 'Tornado' performs best in medium to bright, indirect light but is quite adaptable and can also thrive in lower light conditions. However, too little light may slow growth and reduce the vibrancy of its leaves. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water the plant when the top inch of soil becomes dry, typically once a week depending on the humidity and temperature conditions of your home. It's important to avoid overwatering, as Dracaena is susceptible to root rot. Ensure that your pot has good drainage.

Humidity: While average household humidity is usually sufficient, Dracaena 'Tornado' appreciates higher humidity. If your indoor air is dry, especially during winter, using a humidifier or misting the plant occasionally can help.

Temperature: Keep temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Dracaenas are sensitive to cold drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations, which should be avoided to keep the plant healthy.

Child and Pet Safety: Dracaena 'Tornado', like many other Dracaena varieties, is toxic to pets if ingested. It can cause symptoms such as vomiting, anorexia, depression, and in some cases, more severe reactions in cats and dogs. It is generally not considered toxic to humans but should still be kept out of reach of small children.

General Tips: Fertilize every two months during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Regularly dust the leaves to maintain their health and aesthetic appeal. Pruning can be done to control the size or remove any unhealthy leaves.
