Dragon Tree: Young Seed Stalk

One of the things that I enjoy about gardening is seeing plants through their life cycle.  One of the branch cuttings that I took a few years ago and placed into a container is thriving is now a tree in its own right and has produced a seed stalk. Success!

Visitors to this blog have often asked about propagating this tree. It has been very easy propagating from tree branch cuttings, as this photo attests, but also by removing the pulp that encapsulates the seeds and planting the seeds into soil. Check out the photo of this young seed stalk, compared to a more mature seed stalk from the parent tree, when it completely awash with fleshy seeds!

The seeds become a dark orange over time and attracts all of the neighborhood birds!

    • Hi, Andy,
      I would recommend that you plant them outdoors, where they can get a lot of sun since this tree loves sun. You can plant your seeds either directly into the ground or in a container with potting soil. It does not need to much water. A light watering to keep the soil moist once a week is more than enough. Please do keep me posted on the progress of your seeds!
