What do you usually look for when you shop for indoor or interior plants? Do you prefer beautiful flowering plants over striking foliage plants?
Do bushy plants appeal more to you than upright plants?
Generally, indoor plants are those that exhibit upright growth and do not require direct sunlight. Plants that are usually put on tables or countertops are smaller specimen that are either slow growing or bushy in form. The best choice for any interior is none other than Dracaena known as Warneckii (often misspelled as Dracena Warneckii).
Dracaena Warneckii is a dracaena family native of tropical Africa. This dracaena species is known for its sword-like green leaves that are rigid and sharply pointed. Each gray-green leaf is striped with white or green thereby creating a dazzling effect.
Other dracaena cultivars such as Dracaena lemon lime, dracaena fragrans, dracaena marginata, dracaena sanderiana and dracaena godseffiana make good houseplants as well.
What makes Warneckii a popular interior houseplant is not only due to its beautiful leaves but also because it can be grown in the form of a cane or in the form of a bush. Place them indoors in a place where they can get an indirect bright light.
The quite large Warneckii plant cane can grow up to 5′ feet tall. Warneckii cane plants are then positioned on the floor after they are put in a decorative pot with well-drained potting soil.
The bush Warneckii, on the other hand, grows shorter with leaves radiating from the center. These kinds of Warneckii would make a great addition to a room when put on a counter or tabletops.
A combination of the larger and bushy Warneckii dracaena plant can also make a beautiful accent piece.
