The Dracaena fragrans is a tropical plant, native to Africa. It’s a very popular houseplant due to its hardiness, requiring little light and water and being very easy to care for. It’s recommended by NASA an excellent air cleaner, as it filters-out impurities and pollutants from the air.

Treat it mean, keep it keen. These tough little plants like a bit of neglect. They handle relatively low lighting conditions and are a good choice for those people who are, let’s say “relaxed” about watering. It’s best to let the roots dry-out completely between soakings as it doesn’t like sitting in water for a long time.
