Can anyone identify this plant? I picked it up at Lowe's on the clearance rack for $1.00....It has a tag on it that says exotic angel but I believe that is a line of houseplants...

I'm not sure Tara !! I wish I had better photo capabilities at the moment I'm relying on my cell phone until I get my computer fixed...The leaves seem more jagged along the edge on the photos you posted these are smooth and come to a fine point.. The lighter coloring is almost white or cream colored...The plant is only at this time about 6 or 8 inches tall...

I'm sorry about the photo quality !! If you look at the bottom leaf it comes to a point at the very end and narrows considerably..Kind of like a Philodendrum...But I don't think this is a one of those...

Looks like a Aglaonema AKA Chinese Evergreen, not sure which one. http://garden.org/plants/search/text/?q=Aglaonema&button=

Here's the link to the distributor, Costa Farms with the exotic angel group well.

No wait, I have this one, two of them actually and I can't remember what it is. I need to go on the hunt. The leaves are smaller that the one i linked above.

Hurray! I tip my hat to you.

That's a great buy, Jeff! Gotta love Lowe's "dollar rack"!

I thought so Tara !!! Whenever I'm in Lowe's (which is regularly) and I'm in the garden section I find myself wandering straight to those racks first thing...I also picked up that sprayer for the Orchids...Oh and a ginger plant...Thanks again !!

I agree, Gold Dust Dracaena ... Costa Farms/Exotic Angel Plants sells one named Florida Beauty; scroll down this page to see a photo: http://www.costafarms.com/plants/dracaena

Thank you Lin !!! That looks very close...I'm limited to my phone for everything right now Sighing! ...So every photo I see is small and my eyes are not as great as they used to be...I will say that may be it !!! The plant came with a sticker on the side that said Costa farms...Costa farms is huge !!! I found their Facebook page....

Dracaena. Often found in florists "dish gardens" and terrariums because they stay cute and little.
