Dracaena borinquensis

Dracaena borinquensis is most commonly used as a landscape plant or as a commendable terrarium plant.  Dracaena borinquensis has been  used as an aquarium decoration also because its tough foliage withstands submersion for short periods of time.  Green Sandy Dracaena as it is more commonly known must only be submerged for periods of up to a month and then grown emersed to regenerate.  Dracaena borinquensis would be a good choice for a paludarium or riparium, as it does withstand wet roots without difficulty.
