There are more than 40 types of this plant in the world, so you will surely find the one you like best. It is perfect for cleaning benzene, trichloroethylene and xylene (present in cleaning agents and solvents for domestic use) from the air. One thing you should keep in mind is that it can be a little toxic for dogs and cats, so if you have that kind of four-legged friends in your house, it is better to choose another plant.

The Madagascar dragon tree is remarkably hardy, with a strong root system, which means it can withstand being potted and repotted. They require little feeding and will thrive on only a regular slow-release fertilizer once in the spring and again in the summer.

They do best when temperatures are between 18 and 27 degrees.  This is ideal, as it is the temperature that most houses keep. They will survive lower temperatures, but their growth will be severely slowed.
