Identify My Plant: Dracaena Warnekii or Lemon Lime

Please identify this plant and provide care instructions. Thank you!

Hi Dee,

Your plant is a type of Dracaena; it’s hard to tell from the picture if it’s a dracaena warnekii (white and green) or a dracaena lemon lime (yellow and green). See pictures below. The good news is the care is the same for both of them!

You can read all my care tips in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.

Dracaena warneki plants are considered by some to be slightly poisonous, especially to dogs and cats. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
