spotted Dracaena (Japanese bamboo)

Dracaena surculosa


Long considered a bamboo (many call it "Japanese bamboo") this plant is actually a member of the family Asparagaceae. Here it is fruiting. Note the "spotted" leaves.


This specimen is a potted plant, outdoors. The climate is equatorial/tropical.


This is the same plant as in the previous spotting that was flowering 4 months before.
