I received a plant for my office (approx 1 foot high) a few of years back. It stayed small until I replanted and gave it miracle grow. Now it is touching the ceiling in my basement. Anyone know what kind of plant this is?

Is it a type of palm?

Thanks for any help!

Your lovely plant is a Dracaena marginata:

Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata)

You can take cuttings and root them for additional plants. New shoots will appear just below the cuts on the mother plant.

Thank you so much for your reply and the information about the additional plants. I will have to try that.

Warren: Welcome! to All Things Plants!

I'm glad I recognized your plant and could be of help in identifying it and supplying links to information in the ATP plant database. I've grown that Dracaena as a container plant over the years and I've actually seen it planted in gardens here in the state of Florida. I hope you enjoy browsing the site and making new gardening friends; it's really a wonderful place with an extremely kind and knowledgable group of people!
