Dracaena fragrans (Compacta group) Tornado will be vying for the IPM Primeur 2017 recognition in the category flowering and foliage plants. This new breeding breakthrough will occupy pride of place in IPM’s Novelty Pavilion in Hall 1A.
The plant will also be on show in the stand of Ornamentex B.V. import and export of young plants, located in Hall 1D38 and also as potted plant in the stand of Waterdrinker Aalsmeer in Hall 1B09. Dracaena Tornado is the result of 10 years of extensive breeding and selection work.
The plant has a twisted shape with beautiful dark green leaves with lovely wide lime-coloured edges which makes it an ideal plant for both a modern and classic interior. Dracaena fr. Tornado is a strong plant which doesn’t need special care. It just needs to be placed in a light place as long as it is not in the sun. Watering the plant weekly and adding some fertiliser once in a while is sufficient care.
All Dracaena young and finished plants are produced in the Netherlands in an environmentally and bee friendly way.
In the second half of 2017 the Dracaena fr. Tornado will become gradually available for the consumer. Young plants will become available by the end of 2017.
