Dragon™ Vine pests and disease are limited as these plants have a strong resistance to disease.

In China sometimes termites can harm the older roots or trunk and inchworms can do some damage to the leaves.

In China,  pests if any, are controlled by scattering lime ash from burnt plants or trees. Sometimes chrysanthemum flowers are ground up in the water and sprayed on the plants to control inchworms or other bugs.

This is an easy growing plant that offers foliage and fruit in difficult terrains.
