I absolutely love the smell of dragons blood oils. I have thought about planting some. Does anyone know how hard it is to take care of, things you should watch for etc?

The commercially prepared DragonsBlood Oils are derived from several different species of plants, (Croton, Dracaena, Daemonorops, Calamus rotang and Pterocarpus.) depending on which company you purchase from.
Do you know which species you’re considering growing?
Croton – common names Rushfoil & Croton here is more info
Dracaena– is a genus of about 40 species of trees and succulent shrubs more info
Daemonorops -genus of rattan palms more info
Calamus rotang is another rattan palm more info
Pterocarpus– the common names are mukwa or narra. More info
Sedum spurium – this is a plant that is often referred to as Dragons Blood more info
Dracaena draco – also known as the dragon tree more info
Some companies make their dragonsblood oil by soaking the resin in jojoba oil.
Hmm..doesn’t really help you much with choosing which plant to grow, sorry!
