Corn Plant

What kind of plant is it?

This too easy plant hails from the genus dracaena (pronounced drə-ˈsē-nə).  It’s tree-like structure will make it a stunning display in a corner room of your home.

 Water:

Only the easiest of care will do for a lover of low care houseplants, and the corn plant is definitely on the list.  Although it likes water, it is still fuss free.  You can feel free to mist your corn plant occasionally if you choose, but the true jewel to success with it is to keep the soil moist.  Just use the first segment of your index finger to ensure the plant is damp, and it will reward you with it’s beautiful foliage.

Light: 

Dracaena will do just fine in areas within your home that don’t boast of a lot of light (but remember it must still receive light to thrive).  Or if you want to amp of its growth, so your houseplant will grow fuller and taller, just give it partial light.  The corn plant will burn badly in direct sun.

Fertilizer:  The corn plant will do just fine with a balanced slow release food suitable for houseplants.

More Tips: 

If you notice the tips of your plant’s leaves beginning to turn brown, ensure the soil is moist, and just give it a little mist for often.  Check out some cool misters!
