Our “Rare” Plant

Dracaena fragrans plants or Corn Plants as they are commonly known are wonderful plants to have at home or even in a library. It’s good for you too, because it naturally cleans the air. This is one of the best house plants for removing indoor air toxins such as formaldehyde, ammonia, xylene and toluene. Strongly scented flowers are occasionally produced on a plant grown in its native habitat. Older plants may flower indoors, but it’s rare.
