The Cornstalk Dracaena will do well in a room that gets a medium amount of natural light or near a window with filtered sunlight. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Cornstalk Dracaena needs medium, indirect sunlight. Never place the plant in direct sun, as the rays can scorch the leaves.
Water when the top inch of soil has dried out. When watering, water the plant lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water. Soggy soil should be avoided. Clean the leaves by wiping them down with a damp cloth.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided.
Does well with standard indoor levels of humidity, about 40% - 60%.
The plant can live happily in the provided pot for up to a year. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have become overgrown. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
