Plants: Cordylines, fortune plants, Dracaena fragrans/terminalis

The most well known cordyline in the Philippines is the baston de San Jose (cordyline fruticosa). Here are other cordylines which we have to find the correct scientific name!

Thanks to Ella, we now know that these are fortune plants or Dracaena fragrans, or alternately, cornstalk dracaena. We will eagerly wait when these plants which can grow tall as a house, will bloom!

The plants were photographed in an overcast sky. We will rephotograph and replace the above with better samples!

Here is a cordyline corn plant with central striped leaves (dracaena fragrans 'Massangeana')
