From the tropical
mountain slopes in central Africa. First described by John Bellenden
Ker Gawl in 1808, and a member of the Dracaenaceae family. Will
do fine in the back of the room, almost without light! Good peat and
some water, and it will reach 7 meters. As seen on the photos, it gets
big clusters of brown-white flowers. It can be reproduced both by cutting
(really easy) and by seeds. I moved in with mine in 1997.

I found them in Zambia, covering
the ground under a tropical rain forest in Chirinda National Park,
near the Mozambique border.
