 o
Dracaena ID

Hi everyone,
I've had this dracaena for four years. Last summer it exploded and I had to cut it back, so I made a bunch of clones. I was wondering whether anyone could tell me what *species/variety* of Dracaena it is. I'm attaching a pic of the parent and of one of the clones.
thanks in advance!

And here's a clone…

I'd think some kind of D. deremensis, like limelight or Janet Craig. Exotic Angel has some pics to get you started.

Your plant looks a little chlorotic in the 2nd pic, hard to see the color from the backlit first pic. Is the plant in the 2nd pic growing in water?

Looks like D. Sandariana to me

I believe it is either dracaena sanderiana of dracaena reflexa

It's a reflexa. Used to be considered a dracaena, now is called a pleiomele reflexa, or reflexa pleiomele, there seems to be some confusion. Unless they've renamed it again since a year ago. I think I would put those cuttings into soil.
