Anyone recognize this one? I'm thinking it's possibly Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans 'Massangeana') but I'm really not certain. I got this little plant at the grocery store a few weeks ago with no label, just a sticker saying tropical plant. I have a large D. fragrans without the variegation and it kinda reminds me of Dracaena although this one seems to have a bit of curl to the leaves which I guess could be due to the fact that it's a young plant. I was thinking of putting it in a terrarium but I have a feeling it is indeed a dracaena and will grow big too quickly for the terrarium. Green Grin! Anyone recognize it?

I agree Lin, It certainly does look like the Corn Plant. Yep, might be a bit much for a terrarium. Big Grin

Tara, thanks for responding. Yeah ... I have a tall terrarium but Whistling not quite tall enough for a corn plant. Rolling on the floor laughing

The more I look, the more I'm convinced that this is indeed D. fragrans 'Massangeana' so I'm going to mark this closed/identified. Thanks for the confirmation Tara!
