The Dracaena family is a vast collection of houseplants that are both durable and ornamental. Popular all throughout the world as an elegant addition to the home, Dracaena plants share many similarities in both appearance and care requirements. Their leaves are often thick and glossy, reaching one foot long and a couple inches wide in some instances. Their stems are long and thick, sometimes giving them the appearance of a small tree.
Appearance aside, Dracaena are fortunate to also share care guidelines that even the most novice houseplant owner can follow with ease. These plants will often grow themselves, expecting the bare minimum from you in return. Native to Africa, Southern Asia and Central America, they’re familiar with a wide range of environments, which adds to their vast tolerances.
