Dracaena fragrans is a slow-growing shrub that can be grown in tropical climates without frost. It is commonly used as a houseplant. Dracaena fragrans is also known as a corn plant because it resembles a corn stalk with its tall stem.
Its habit becomes palm-like as the leaves drop and age. This species is cultivated as a specimen, filler, or screen. NASA has shown it to be effective in removing indoor air pollutants. It can withstand low light conditions for up to 2 years.

Different types of Dracaena
Commonly known as the song of India or pleomele, Dracaena reflexa is the most common of the dracaena species. The main attraction of this houseplant is its leaves. The yellow stripes on these houseplants' narrow, pointed leaves are hard to miss. This versatile houseplant can thrive indoors and outdoors in a semi-shady area such as a patio.
Dracaena Marginata Also known as red-edge dragon tree or Madagascar dragon tree Dracaena margarata is an evergreen tree. It can grow up to 8 to 15 feet tall and 3 to 8 feet wide with proper care. It is characterized by stiff, purplish-red foliage and slim, curving trunks.
Dracaena fragrans massangeana or Dracaena massangeana is commonly referred to as mass cane or corn plant and is widely used indoors. It is a houseplant that is relatively inexpensive and one of the most affordable dracaena types. The mass cane is distinguished by its long, strap-like leaves and thick, woody canes. It can tolerate low light conditions but prefers moderate natural lighting.
