I recently got this plant and I looked up on internet but couldn't find one. I don't know anything about this plant and so my question. What plant is this? Corn Plant or Janet Craig or none?

    It is better to have a question (a identification) per question. Jun 20, 2016 at 8:11
  • Agree. This question will likely be closed shortly. Jun 20, 2016 at 9:33
  • Not sure about this one - leaves don't look floppy enough to be Janet Craig...

  • I'm voting to leave this open because it's been edited to ask about just one plant. Although someone might know right away, more details would be helpful. Thanks! Jun 20, 2016 at 18:30
  • @Sue What kind of more info I am supposed to give?

Could be a young Janet Craig, but also looks like a leggy Green Jewel to me (its more compact). All fall under Dracaena anyway, so if you Google image search Dracaena, I'm sure you'll find a match rather quickly. All have similar care requirements; moderate exposure, moderate moisture. Too much water is quickly displayed by yellowing tips. Very hardy and one of my favorite houseplants due to the fact.

Edit: This site may help you pin down what you have. It actually looks like the Elegance Cane they have pictured: MiamiTropicalPlants.com

  • I'm not sure this really answers the question. Your answer says "go look here". If you can provide more points about why it is a dracaena then this would be a better answer.

    I actually suggested a couple possible cultivars, then directed him to a resource that may be able to help. It is definitely a dracaena of some sort, just not positive of the cultivar without closer observation. If it were on of the variegated varieties it would probably be a bit easier to identify. Sorry but I can't do much better without more pics or info (size, age, origin, etc).

I asked the question on another garden forum, and they told me it's Dracaena Reflexa. After some google search, I found it to be Pleomele - Dracaena Reflexa.
