This slow-growing shrub is a flowering plant from the Asparacaea family and indigenous to tropical regions of Africa from South Sudan to Mozambique. Dracaena Fragrans has long been appreciated for its beauty, and first made its way into the homes of Europeans in the mid-1800s. This plant is easy to care for and makes a fantastic starter-plant for any aspiring anthophile.
Dracaena Fragrans is famous for its shiny leaves and white six-lobed corolla flowers. People have embraced this exotic beauty as a decorative houseplant in Europe since the mid 1800s, and was popularized in the United States at the turn of the 20th century.
Dracaena is a genus of plants that contains over 120 species. Dracaena Fragrans is known by a variety of names including “Lemon Light” and is commonly referred to as the “Corn Plant” due to its thick cane which resembles a cornstalk.
This plant is an absolute breeze to care for and only requires that you water it once a week or when the top of the soil feels dry to the touch. While these plants prefer to live in moist soil, it's important not to over-water as they are susceptible to root-rot if left in sitting water.
Though Dracaena Fragrans is both fragrant and beautiful, it also produces a chemical called Saponin that is toxic to pets. If you have pets, it's best to keep this plant out of reach.
In the evening, Dracaena Fragrans gives off a sweet, calming fragrance that is noticeable from up to a hundred feet away.
People love the aromatic nature of this easy-to-care-for plant and often use it to bring a naturally soothing smell into their home or office.
