A Favorite Houseplant, Dracaena Marginata
Dracaena Marginata is one of my favorite houseplants. That might be because it is one of the first large indoor plants that I ever owned.
I was the Plant Lady at the huge Xerox Research Center in Palo Alto, California. They had a 6 foot tall Dracaena Marginata in lower light that was getting a little leggy and it was decided with my contact person, Gary, that it would be replaced with a brand new plant.
He did not want to keep the old plant and told me that if I wanted it, I should take it home. That is exactly what I did!
The Marginata did quite well at my house, placed next to a large sliding glass door in bright light. Ever since that time, Marginata has been one of my favorite houseplants.
They are really easy to care for once you know how. And they are very beautiful and graceful plants when they are grown in the home. You can let them grow large or easily keep them at the size you want them.
