|The dracaena group is a very large one, making positive identification difficult. Additionally, Cordyline is often sold as Dracaena. Your best bet is to find a comprehensive houseplant book and read the plant descriptions or compare your plant to the pictures. A good houseplant reference is The Houseplant Experte by Dr. D. G. Hessayon (ISBN# 0-903505-35-5). You can probably find it in your local library. Good luck with your identification project!
