Just brought home a plant labeled "tropical foilage" and was so glad they cleared that up as I didn't want to confuse it with a artic leming. It has a vienless spear shaped waxy green leaf with smooth edges and white spots. It seemed like several plants more or less fit that description.

I think the give away was it grows two leaves opposite each other, then a section of stem, then two leaves opposite each other again in a rather consistent growth. A variegated Hoya?? Maybe an aspergras plant, hard to tell.

It is a varigated hoya. The leaves are very tough and leathery. It will trail, can be trained on a trellis or around a window. The flowers are waxy looking, white and sweet smelling. They are quite moist and drip a bit of nectar.

This is a gold dust dracaena. It looks completely different from other dracaenas so many people don't recognize it. I received my first one from my grandmother 45 years ago. I recently have seen this plant for sale in places like Home Depot and even Walmart. I am growing one now; mine is now the size of a small bush. As a previous answer said, the leaves are indeed thick and leathery (as they mature). The gold dust dracaena is a slow grower, sometimes recommended for terrariums.

Give it moderate light several feet from a window. It absolutely wants no direct sun. Water it only when it is dry. Don't overwater; it detests saturated soil. This plant will bloom after a few years; don't give up waiting! Mine blooms in the early spring. The flowers are tiny, insignificant clusters on long stalks. They are white and very fragrant, smelling somewhat like lily-of-the-valley. Mine scents the whole room. The flowering lasts for about three weeks.

By the way, my gold dust dracaena (godseffiana) sometimes gets brown leaf tips. I recently read this is due to fluoride in the tap water. Remedy: switch to distilled water.
