No, not trial and error. You don't want to go risking your pets like that...or trial and error
i have identified it as dracaena marginata or madagascar dragon tree, i am positive this is the right ID. thanks for all the help i would never have found it without the dracaena starting point
second ? now this is not one of the 2 dracaena listed in the live plants database, anyone know whether or not this species is safe?
