Overcrowded Dragon Wing ...thin???

blueberrier1May 20, 2012

Gifted with a new to me Dragon Wing (bushel size plant), in a hanging pot. While checking moisture, I noted that the multi stems are packed like a bamboo grove!

Can, or should, I remove half of these? It really appears too dense/unnatural/supersized to me. I have no semi-shade site to plant this outdoors.

Would you repot to a larger container? Should it be divided? Any special soil mix?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

All of the above. However,if it looks attractive and healthy, why not enjoy it for a few weeks more? It has likely been underpotted for quite a while, and handling it well. If it were mine I think I would put off the surgery for a few weeks more. shouldn't need any special soil mix.
