This plant seems to change it appearances. Mine is young, but does seem to change. This is after one year.

   This member of the Dracaenaceae family was given this name by Wessel Marais in 1986. It's found in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Somalia, growing in well-drained soil with some water and sun.
