Question: How do you care for a CORN PLANT?

Answer: Dracaena fragrans is a native of Tropical Africa where it can reach 50 feet in the wild where it also produces fragrant yellow flowers followed by orange-red fruits. The name Dracaena comes from the Greek 'drakaina' a dragon.

Dracaena fragrans prefers bright to medium light, although it is tolerant of low light. Allow soil to just dry out between waterings. I hope this info helps.
