Description

The corn plant (Dracaena fragrans) is an oldie but goodie in the houseplant industry. Europeans have been using these tropical African evergreens as indoor plants since the mid-1800s, and they’ve been popular in the United States since the early 20th century. Corn plants grow fairly slowly from one or more thick canes (stems) that produce long, narrow leaves (like those of corn) toward the top. This gives them a similar appearance to a palm tree, which is why they’re sometimes referred to as “false palms.” They make good houseplants because they are tall and narrow, typically only reaching around 4 to 6 feet high in containers, and they can withstand a fairly significant amount of abuse from casual indoor gardeners. Springtime is ideal for starting new plants, though you can typically pot nursery plants indoors at any time of year.

Sunlight – It requires filtered sunlight.

Watering – Keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy during the growing season (spring to fall). Reduce watering in the late fall to winter.

Plant Care – They do best in temperatures from 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid exposing them to temperatures below 50 degrees. Corn plants prefer organically rich soil. Use a balanced liquid fertilizer about every month throughout the growing season, and feed sparingly or not at all over the winter.
