'Janet Craig' Dracaena
Botanical Name: Dracaena deremensis
'Janet Craig' is one of the few plants that have taken on the name of a cultivar as a common name. But then, few are as easy to grow and welcome in the home as this attractive Dracaena plant. Its dramatic form makes a striking floor plant.
"Janet" is well worth getting to know. Although tropical by nature, it adapts beautifully to average home conditions. In fact, it does so well on its own, you don't need to fuss over it at all.
Young plants are a tuft of upright leaves. As the plant grows, it forms a cane-like stem with a cluster of leaves at its top.
Its dark-green leaves are naturally shiny. Because of their upright form, they can be dust-catchers. Keep the leaves clean by wiping them off with a damp cloth.
Prune it back if it grows too tall. If you want, you can propagate the stem cuttings for more plants.
