I have inherited a houseplant and frankly it doesn’t look very happy.  I don’t know what it is so don’t know how to help it.  All suggestions welcome!

Thank you

    Are they separate stems or growing from a shared stump? Can you describe what the texture of the leaves is like too please.
    If you can keep your head, while those around you are losing theirs, you may not have grasped the seriousness of the situation.

    Hi Wild Edges, I have attached some more pictures.  I hope this helps.

    Stems are separate but appear to share the same root system.  The leaves are smooth and even in colour.  

  • Could it be a Dracaena Limelight opening its new leaves?

    What about Curcuma Alismatifolia, Siam Tulip. They are selling a lot of them in Ikea.

    Thanks everyone, I honestly can’t be sure. It could be either of your suggestions, thanks for taking the time to respond.

    I might just have to put it in a new pot and see what happens.  From what I’ve been told it’s never really looked any different to how it is now .... I wonder if it’s secretly dead!!

  • Let's see what happens @p10aan it may surprise us all. Good luck.
