Care instructions

Question from Stephen

In forum: Identify a plant

I inherited a pot plant, I think it needs repotting but am not sure exactly what it is. I know it needs little water, leaves are smooth to stroke in one direction but rough if you try to run your finger up a leaf, leaves eventually go brown and wither leaving the stem at the centre

Hi! We have a very overgrown plant in our office but no one knows what it is, is it possible to tell with these images? Thought they were something like dracena marginata. Thanks!
