Reminiscent of the fantastical truffula trees from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, this sprightly and structural plant is a compact variety from the Dragon Tree family. As a slow grower, this tree is perfect for those looking for a taller house plant to style up smaller spaces.


Prefers medium light


1 cup of water when soil is dry, avoid over-watering


Low maintenance and great for beginners

We love our new dracaena compacta! It came expertly packaged, in a beautiful white ceramic pot, and dressed with a vibrant green moss. We'll certainly be ordering more from Leon & George.
