Dravieria | Sanceana 'Fireflies Green'

Latin Name: Dravieria/Sanceana 'Fireflies Green'
Plant height (inc. pot) - Pot width

Known as Dravieria or as Sanceana, the other portmanteau of Sansevieria and Dracaena. So is it a Dracaena or a Sansevieria? The answer is complex, as in 2017 all Sansevierias were reclassified, based on molecular phytogenic studies, to be part of the Dracaena genus. Both are part of the even wider family Asparagaceae but have distinguishing features. This particular plant is where those features merge. 

With long, cascading leaves that form the entire plant (like Sansevieria) that grow from a central point in a floret shape (like Dracaena) they are easy identified by this unique appearance and gold-splash style variegation.

Despite the complicated biology behind this plant, don't be intimidated as it's an easy one to keep.
