Can someone kindly ID this plant? Came with a flower bouquet and roots quite readily.

    I think it's some kind of Dracena. This one might be Dracena fragrans 'Gold Coast'.

    ...I was just going to say the same as above.. Dracaena fragrans..however I thought the variety 'Lime Green'....

    Yeah, I'd say Dracaena fragrans varigata, a very lanky one, not getting enough light.

    I thought at first it was a type of grass such as Arundo donax. The cane is  bamboo like but the leaves not right for Arundo.

    Dracaena is a possibility - trying to find a pic of fresh trunk to check.

    Thanks everyone!

    It is definitely a Dracaena my first thought was what's known in the trade as a Yellow Stipe, but I'm pretty certain it's a lanky fragrans. Has it ever flowered? They smell very lovely and drip lots of sticky nectar.

    Thanks - literally only had it a  month or so. It was foliage in a bouquet of flowers for the wife. I thought it had potential for rooting and the foliage is nice. It has started to root.

    It is Dracena sanderiana, often used in aquariums and also called ''Lucky bamboo
