Draco, the Epipremnum pinnatum
Meet Draco! This dragon awakes, his tail splitting into long fingery fenestrations as he ages. Named after a favorite constellation, Draco the Dragon Tail hangs around both day and night. Need a star-gazing pal? He’s your guy… but only if you promise to watch the draconid meteor shower every October with him.
We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.
This plant ships as a 2″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
We root certain plants in sphagnum moss for greatest shipping success. When you go to repot your plant, carefully remove the growers pot and gently tease open the sphagnum and roots. If some sphagnum falls off, no worries! It can be discarded or added to your potting medium. If some stays attached to the roots, just let it be. Your roots will grow happily around it. We advise that you don’t overly mess with the roots, they don’t need to be picked clean. Questions? Message us!

- Let top of soil dry between waterings. Though does love humidity.
- Fenestrations (holes or "windows") in the leaves will start to happen as plant matures. Growing the plant up a stake or pole will encourage fenestration.
- Toxic to people and pets.
