1. It’s easy to see why the Dracaena marginata is one popular plant for indoor use. In general the marginata is rugged and carefree as an indoor plant adding a tropical appearance to any room it graces. The tricolor cultivar needs more light but follows the same care requirements below.
2. When planted in the landscape outdoors in south Florida a marginata can grow to heights of approximately 15 feet. The leaves with red to purple stripes running along the edge find themselves sit atop long slender “canes”. As new leaves emerge the oldest mature leaves yellow and fall off.
3. When marginata is grown for indoor use “stock” plants are planted the growing tips or long thin stems called “canes” are cut and rooted. The rooted plants are planted into a variety of forms and grown on for use as a houseplant or in commercial applications by interiorscapers or plantscapers.
Marginata Culture
4. Like most Dracaenas the marginata will give you best results in bright yet indirect light. Although bright light is the preference it will handle lower light levels and the leaves will be thinner. Plants sold as office plants have been acclimated to lower light, beware if you place an acclimated marginata in direct light of a period of time the leaves may get bleach spots or patches.
5. If you’re watering from the top let the plant dry out a little between waterings. When the soil is dry to the tough – water the plant thoroughly and drain off the excess water.
6. What temperatures are best? The marginata is much like you enjoying a comfortable 75 degrees, allowing for this top notch “plant air cleaner” to remove pollutants like Formaldehyde from the air.
7. One big advantage most all the Dracaenas provide for use as a office plant is the small footprint. You can get a tall upright 6′ character plant or other different and unique looks, which uses very little floor space.

Hi Joe,
I want to let you know how pleased I am with Brian Guilfoyle’s outstanding service. He has gone way above and beyond for us as we planned for our BOD meeting. I met him in our office this morning at 7am to complete half the installation of plants (all we had time to install before the meeting). He has been nothing but a huge help throughout this process. I know he is so busy, but when he is working with me, you would think Hayes is his only concern.

You are so lucky to have someone so dedicated to his customers representing PlantScape Design!
And, the wall looks beautiful! It will make a big impact as visitors (and our Board of Directors) enter the new space for the first time. I am recommending your company to our design firm, Leslie Saul and Associates. 

Thank you!

When we think of adding a colorful accent to our indoor office plants we often think about cut flowers or a flowering potted plant. Actually there is another option. Tropical foliage plants that have beautiful colored leaves. If your office has the right conditions, bright light and warm temperature, there is an unlimited selection of plants that have colorful foliage and variegated leaves. Crotons, Cordyline, Rex begonias, Stromanthe are just a few that can brighten your office with some color. We use many of these on locations in the Boston metro area. Colored leafy botanicals have unlimited plant possibilities.
