Dracaena Tornado is an unusual, exotic houseplant with very showy foliage. It has long, slender dark green leaves with lime-yellow edges that grow in spiral clusters along the stems, resembling a tornado shape, hence the name! This plant has a slow to moderate growth rate and can reach heights of 4 to 6 feet when grown indoors. It can be grown as a single specimen plant or combined with other plants in stunning plant arrangements. Its unique, intriguing foliage brings a touch of nature and fits in different indoor settings and décor styles.
Dracaena Tornado is relatively easy to care for and can make a wonderful houseplant for beginners. This plant also tolerates different lighting conditions including moderately low light rooms.
As a Dracaena, Tornado stands among the best air-purifying houseplants and is recommended by NASA for its ability to efficiently cleanse indoor air and eliminate harmful airborne pollutants such as benzene and formaldehyde.
Tornado thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions, making it adaptable to various indoor environments.
This plant has a medium watering demand and can be slightly drought-tolerant. Water only when the topsoil is dry to the touch.
Dracaena Tornado loves well-draining soil with some organic matters like coco coir. Adding some perlite to the mix to increase aeration and drainage is recommended.
This plant loves warm, stable temperatures between 65º F- 75º F. It does not like temperatures below 50º F so protect it from cold drafts and freezing temperatures.
To boost growth, you can feed your Dracaena Tornado once a month during the growing season in spring-summer with a liquid houseplant fertilizer.
Dracaenas contain saponins that can be toxic if ingested. Keep this plant out of reach of children and pets.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
