Dracaena marginata

It's an indoor tropical houseplant. They like bright, indirect light. The "marginata" has the red edging on the leaves. It is also called a "Madigascar Dragon tree". As it grows, the botom leaves drop off. You can let it grow normally and it will be straight, but they are easy to bend and shape. They are 'air cleaner' plants, removing formaldehyde from the air. they don't need much water.

var. marginata or augustifolia.
Found around the islands of the Indian Ocean. It is a common houseplant. The thinner leaves can be edged with white which is the "Song of India" variety. "Song of Jamaica" has wider leaves with less pronounced coloured edging.

You plant is easy to care for - it requires little light, although will prefer high amounts of sunlight (gets spindly otherwise), and can tolerate temperatures a low as 15C 59F. It requires little water, and if it gets too much water it is prone to root-rot. You can propagate it with short stem cuttings.
