    I know someone with a really old dragon tree and it's beyond terrible condition and I really want to know more so that I can bring this thing back to life... Going to Google in the meantime...

    I would love to live in Hawaii. Here is a link from a knowledgeable dragon fruit farmer, more about IMO and KNF but maybe you can get some answers? I think the second video is in his orchard.

    Are you asking about dragon fruit? It's a climbing cacti, not a tree. The only other plant that I can think of that might be called a dragon tree is Dracaena. I have both in my yard. Post some pics and maybe I can help.

    Thats the problem with common names...no two countries call the sme plant by the same name.
    I've grown Drecena...you may have overwatered it but without a pic its just a guesss...so...got a pic?

    If it is 15 years old it is doubtful that it is over watered. Most likely it needs to be trimmed back. They grow easily from cuttings, so you can easily root new ones. In a tropical climate they grow fast and are pretty tough. They start looking crappy over time. I cut them back severely and root the cuttings. New growth will come up from the trunk if it is still viable. They sometimes just fade away with old age.
