Snagged this guy up for only $3 at Fred Meyers after he lost soil, and they cannot repot plants. I'm thinking it's a Dracaena, perhaps Dracaena fragrans Corn Plant, as I have seen in a post not long ago on this forum. Just trying to pin it down for sure, it came with no label other than "tropical plant" as so many grocery store finds do!

Looks like this one to me:
Dracaena reflexa 'Riki'

I agree with Purple. I have one that looks just like it. All of the lucky bamboo plants that I've seen have thinner leaves with white stripes.

Looks like the one I asked about. I can't decide which it could be. They all look so similar to me!!!!

I just took this pic. Maybe it can help show how textured the Riki leaf is, vs. the very smooth corn plant leaf. Riki leaf is also much more narrow from side to side.

Thanks, purpleinopp, I think that's it, or close! At least I know it's Dracaena for care, I know how to keep those guys happy! And I agree, my lucky bamboo produces thinner leaves, and more delicate. I have an old one from my grandfather where the stalk was accidentally submerged fully in water, producing new growth in only the leaves from one section and is now 2 ft. from the base of the vase!

Kathy547, on your thread I would have guessed Draceana reflexa 'Song of Jamaica'

But I couldn't see any stem on your only photo to differentiate, and I would defer to David's knowledge before mine on this anyway.

The identity of the plant on this thread is certainly not Dracaena fragrans, which does not show the can bark between living leaves as D. reflexa does.

Whoops, forgot to close this guy up, thanks everyone! I'm sticking with Riki for now, I will see how if there's any changes once it gets accustomed to its new home!
