Dracenas are among the easiest and most common indoor plants around. Young plants are small and bushy, making them perfect residents of desks and tabletops. Older dracaenas develop woody stems and can become tree like. They're ideal for adding a bold splash of texture to your indoor decor. Add interest by selecting varieties variegated with contrasting colors. Striped-type dracaena offers beautiful leaves that look good by themselves or in combination with other plants. When they're young, they form low mounds that look a bit like stars; as they grow, they pick up some height, eventually becoming tree-like.
