Dracaena reflexa, Song of india

You might know this plant by its common names Pleomele or Maylasian draceana. This plant can be grown as a small bush, or, left to its own devices outdoors in a subtropical climate, a tree reaching over 30 feet in height. It has short, thick, pointed leaves.
The reflexa has dark green foliage while Dracaena reflexa 'Song of Jamaica' is variegated with off white to yellow-beige colored stripes and Dracaena reflexa 'Song of India' boasts a bright yellow variegation.
Although most Dracaenas have few problems with pest, occasionally mealy bug and scale can attack the plant.
