We offer terrarium plants loose, potted, tissue-cultured, and in tubes. Tropical waters and wetland bogs are biodiverse environments where plants play a key role in sustaining ecosystems that feature impressive fish, reptiles, amphibians, and more. No less remarkable than the fauna is the plants in these environments which encompass many types from surface-covering vegetation to submerged oxygenators. At Complete Aquatic Systems, we cultivate plants for tropical and bog vivariums (a.k.a. paludariums).
Dracaena sanderiana ‘White Ribbon’
Dracaena sanderiana, often called “lucky bamboo”, “white sanderiana”, or “white ribbon”, is an attractive, stalk-like plant. Its green leaves with creamy white edges give it a unique look that makes a striking addition to terrariums. Dracaena sanderiana terrarium plants should not be kept submerged permanently, as they are not true aquatic plants and will eventually die.

About Dracaena sanderiana
Dracaena sanderiana terrarium plants should be kept in a well-lit area but away from direct sunlight. The flora requires a consistently clean water source, so change the water at least every few weeks, ideally using distilled water or rainwater. If left submerged permanently, the plant will die. It doesn’t require pruning, but providing lucky bamboo liquid fertilizer can help it thrive.
To propagate Dracaena sanderiana, take stem cuttings during the summer, and then stand them in freshwater. Use a sharp, sterile pair of scissors or a blade to re-cut the stems at 45 degrees. Store the stem ends in freshwater enhanced with conditioner, and keep the water within a temperature of 53-59o F.
