This is a variety of Dracaena marginata. This plant normally is a slow grower, especially during the winter when days are shorter and there is naturally less light. Growth is slowest in reduced lighting conditions, so increased light might help it grow a bit faster. It may be fertilized about once a month during the spring and summer growing season. Use a water soluble fertilizer intended for house plants at the lower rate according to the label instructions.
