Sansevieria Francisii Overview
Dracaena francisii is happy wherever. It can handle partial shade to full sun, but it will grow taller the more light it gets. It is also a succulent in disguise, so only water it little and infrequently! This succulent plant was previously known as Sansevieria francisii and is often still sold as such. Fun Fact: These plants use a different form of photosynthesis, called CAM, standing for Crassulacean Acid Metabolism. It is an adaptation to dry environments and involves absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen during the night. This is typically carried out during the day for most plants during photosynthesis. Dracaena francisii is an evergreen, succulent species from the Asparagaceae family. It produces fleshy, cylindrical, smooth, green-grey striped leaves. This species can produce attractive, scented, white flowers in spring or summer, this is infrequent in cultivation.
