We need to find the name of one of our houseplants. It use to belong to our Grandpa and is about 40+ years old. It has only flowered once that we know of. It had small white flower clusters and has a dark green leave with white spots.
Ignore the red berries in pot, they are just decorative sticks.

Your Gold Dust Dracaena looks healthy and well-cared for. If you are inclined, you could remove some of its legginess by pruning back some of the longest stems and get new growth lower down.
