The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Dracaena plant, botanically known as Dracaena reflexa, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name `Riki`.
The new Dracaena can be compared to its parent cultivar, the cultivar `Song of India`. The new cultivar is different from plants of `Song of India` and other Dracaenas commercially known and used in commerce in the following characteristics:
1. Plants of the new Dracaena have a striking and intense leaf variegation pattern compared to other Dracaenas. The dark green portions are darker and yellowish green areas are lighter on plants of the new Dracaena compared to plants of the cultivar `Song of India`.
2. Plants of the new Dracaena have thicker leaves than other Dracaenas. The thicker leaf imparts greater sucking insect resistance to plants of the new Dracaena compared to plants of the cultivar `Song of India`.
3. Root development on plants of the new Dracaena is more rapid than plants of the selection `Song of India`.
