Dracaena reflexa syn. pleomele reflexa

 

Song Of India

This is a yellow edged variegata type. They usually grow up to about 1m tall if grown in a pot and have a bushy tree-like growing habit. This Dracaena needs bright light and quite high humidity levels to thrive. The worst two things a grower can do is over water or allow the temperatures to drop very low.
