Hi,
We've had a Dracaena or possibly a Cordyline as a houseplant for about as long as I can remember. As far as I can recall, it has never fruited or flowers, but puts up prolific shoots. I think I have narrowed it down, due to leaf width and shade, to Dracaena draco, Dracaena cinnabari, Cordyline australis (previously Dracaena australis) and Cordyline stricta (previously Dracaena stricta), however I could be off here. A picture is below and, I can take more if it would be helpful. Thanks for any help.
Best,
Pitch

Hmm, just took a closer look at how the leaves are stacked and I think you might be right! Though, now I'm not sure if it's more likely to be:
a. Yucca elephantipes

b. Yucca aliofolia

c. another species I don't know of.

Any input?
