Additional Information

History and Naming of Janet Craig Dracaena Compacta:

Native to Africa, Dracaena is a large family, currently encompassing 110 species with about 40 varieties that are grown commercially. The name Dracaena comes from the draikana, an ancient Greek word meaning female dragon. Some varieties of Dracaena exude a thick, red sap when broken similar to dragon blood. Some of the plants in this family even have red stems. Unlike other plants, Dracaena has a tendency to thicken a secondary meristem, and produces thicker roots as a result. The best ways to propagate Dracaena is either by cuttings or by the seed. After the sticky white flowers, Dracaena produces a small round fruit that is viable. Unfortunately, these plants are unlikely to flower indoors, and the flower is not very showy. Dracaena demensis is the Latin name for Janet Craig Dracaena. Dracaena is ancient Greek for female dragon, while demensis means of or from Van Diemen's Land, an old name for Tasmania.
