What is this Flowering HousePlant?- Dracaena Janet Craig

Hi Judy…I have had this plant for a number of years and this is the first time it has sprouted these seeds/flowers. Could you tell me the name of the plant and if these are seeds or flowers? I would appreciate any information or recommendations you may have. Thank You.

Your plant is called a Dracaena janet craig. A Dracaena janet craig rarely blooms indoors so this is pretty special, in fact, the Chinese say that when this plant blooms you will have good luck. Dracaenas thrive on neglect and grow well in low light. When in doubt, do not water! Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering. The lower the light, the less often a dracaena needs water. Fluoride, chlorine, or salt in the water causes brown leaf tips and yellow spots on the leaves.
