Fun Facts: Dracaena marginat...
Dracaena marginata has a very dense root system and can hold water in its stems and roots for drought conditions to survive.
The Dracaena marginata has a mechanism in its root system that vacuums up every droplet of water in the soil called "hydraulic capacitance." This moisture is then stored in the stem and releases slowly into the leaves to aid in its survival.
