I couldnt tell you the variety, but I found this from wikipedia:

Dracaena deremensis is a tropical shrub of the Dracaena genus. Dracaena deremensis grows as an 8 to 12 feet unbranched rosette of evergreen leaves, though some cultivars are variegated in a white to grey-green color. Dracaena deremensis is also commonly grown as an indoor houseplant and includes the popular cultivars 'Janet Craig' and 'Warneckii'. When chilled, 'Janet Craig' produces strongly fragrant white flowers on stalks 10-12 inches in length. Flowering is rare when kept indoors.

Dracaena deremensis has also been shown by the NASA Clean Air Study to help remove chemicals such as Formaldehyde as well as xylene and toluene[1].

Hope this helps a bit

I have never seen a dracaena with curly leaves like that before Shocked unless maybe it's something new on market.
It almost looks like a hoya carnosa (Hindu rope) Lack of light can cause large gaps between the leaves.
I just came across a plant that I remembered someone wanted an id on. It sure is a nice and unusual looking plant whatever it is

Check out, Aeschynanthus parvifolius (Lipstick Plant)
