Dracaena marginata

11th October 2009

This is just a moment of reckless self indulgence. I used to grow Dracaena, and I used to be very fond of them. Now they are like an old love affair, full of emotional reflections struggling through the greyish remnants of forgetfulness. I thought I would never forget, and now you're just an endless loop of the edited highlights, the real content has long slipped out of reach.
And so it is with Dracaena. A rooted cutting that promised a new start but there is (quite literally) not enough heat left here to keep it going - I enjoyed it for a month and then gave it away! I'm not sure if it was nostalgia or opportunism. Perhaps it doesn't matter.
