Q.Dracaena Roots

Zone South West Rocks NSW | krysharper added on May 31, 2020 | Answered

We have dracaenas growing all down the side of our house. We keep them trimmed and they look great. However, we have suddenly found that the dracaenas have a profusive root system and some roots are quite thick. We are wanting to know whether these roots are invasive and could they damage a retainer wall. Thank you. Krys

If they are confined, then they can cause some damage. If they have any other direction to go, and are not confined to an area, then they won't usually cause any damage.

They don't transplant well, so doing so will result in the death of the plant.
