Keep me somewhere warm and humid and in a bright spot, but out of direct afternoon sunshine.
When my top few cms of soil has dried out water me thoroughly until water drains from the holes at the bottom.
I will grow quicker in a bright spot, but I can also tolerate light shade.
Give me liquid fertiliser once a month during the growing season.
Europeans have been using corn plants as indoor trees since the 1800s. Corn plants are part of the Dracaena genus which, includes over 120 species. The largest member of the genus is Dracaena draco which can grow 25 feet tall and wide.
In its native African Dracaena fragrans or the corn plant is often grown as a hedge. It was also identified in NASA's Clean Air Study as a plant that can remove the indoor pollutants formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene from the air.
Corn plants are hardy plants that can tolerate a little neglect and a range of growing conditions. To thrive, they prefer being in a bright location, with high humidity and watering whenever the soil has dried out. However, they can also tolerate lower light levels, although growth may be a little weaker.
In Tanzania, the plant is known as "masala" to the Chagga people of Tanzania, who regard it as a holy plant.
If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.
