: I live in Southeast Texas, about an hour from the Gulf of Mexico, where it stays in the 60's to 80's most of the time. I have a Dracaena Masssangeana that is currently about 6' with beautiful green leaves and 2 stalks. It is quickly outgrowing the pot. My question is, with the warm climates down here, is it possible to put this plant in the ground or will it harm it?

Hi Kelley,

Your dracena is hardy in zones 10b thru 11. Texas zones are 6 to 9, so I wouldn't leave it out for the winter.
