Looks like one of the "Corn Plants" to me as well.

I've never heard of a plant called Mala Plan and can't find such a name when googling. Another similar looking plant is Cordyline.

I don't think it's a Corn Plant but possibly another species of Dracena. It also looks a lot like a Yucca.

Yuccas need very little watering. Just like Corn Plants. Try to keep them dryer.
Watering these well, once a month, may be OK.
Otherwise--your plant looks healthy to me.

The stems Yuccas grow from do not have a lot of roots. Over watering may create root-rot.
Watch your watering!
