I got this plant a few years back and its falling over. I'd like to identify it is so I can figure out what it needs, bigger pot, nutrients, more sun. Thanks in advance! :)

Hi & welcome!

Compare it to the variegated form of lucky bamboo (Dracaena braunii/sanderiana.)
Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena braunii)

Whatever it might be, without some wind to resist (from always being inside,) stems can become weak. Staking is an option, or trimming off the taller, leaning tips and sticking them back in the pot (or into another pot to start more.)

Yes, it could be the Lucky Bamboo.
Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena braunii)

Also known by the synonyym Dracaena sanderiana and sometimes Lucky Bastard *Blush*

From my personal experience this plant will grow just fine with artificial light and only water with occasional liquid fertilizer. This plant is found in almost every Asian restaurant near where I live and the plant seems to thrive with very little care.

Thank you all, I think this could be it even though mine seems to be very thin.
