Socotran species, looks a lot like D draco, but more sleek and narrow, more numerous leaves. RAre in cultivation and sought after.

When I saw the first time a Dracaena cinnabari, I was absolutely thrilled that there are dragon trees with succulent leaves. There were about 10 years ago to buy short-term one-year seedlings which were very expensive. In the bucket grow unfortunately very slow and still fit on my window sill. Maybe, but my pots are too small ... or planted they may grow a bit faster.
The plant you are showing here is huge, I did not know that such a huge specimen in culture exists but there is apparently nothing that does not exist in California.
Thank you for this post, D. cinnabari is my favorite plant.
