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.
Temperature Keeping it warm will mean faster growth, but it will not die at the first sign of cold either.
WateringKeep it relatively moist in summer, watering when the top inch of soil is dry. During winter, be much more sparing, allowing it to almost dry out completely before soaking.
Feeding Feed each second watering starting when the weather gets warm (normally around April) until it gets cold (around September)
Tips Brown tips on the ends of the leaves and a bit of wrinkling likely means under-watering or excessively dry air. Any black, particularly at the base of the plant or near the centre is more likely over-watering.
Light Level Will cope in a wide range of conditions, but the ideal spot is a shadier place out of any direct sun.
