Position where it is convenient for you
Madagascar dragon enjoys bright light but it will thrive even if kept away from a windowsill in a darker spot. In the absence of adequate light, the tree will not wilt or experience a foliage fall, only the red edges leaves would disappear. The new leaves will be thinner and even more prettier. So it is up to you which look you prefer more. However, to get a typical Madagascar look, situate the plant where it will receive no less than four hours of direct sunlight each day.
Water moderately when growing
Water your dragon two to three times in a week when the plant is in its active growth phase. However, water much less during winter months, and allow the soil in the pot to dry out to one third between each watering, both in summers and winters.
Feed your Madagascar dragon with a balanced houseplant fertilizer from time to time. However, it would manage to thrive even if you forget to fertilize.
Tolerance to climate
Madagascar dragon is a hardy plant and survives in all kinds of weather. But it is recommended to keep your tree away from air-conditioners or heaters, as it can cause the potting medium to dry quickly. The best daytime temperature range for these plants is between 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
These plants respond well to pruning, so feel free to trim your dragon tree. If your plant is growing too tall, cut off the tops in early summer.
