Original Message Dracena/corn plant
First, I gave the wrong name of the
plant. It is a Dracaena Mageana (sp?) -
Corn Plant. I'm afraid I have watered
inconsistantly - maybe once every two
weeks. How can I tell the right amount?
I thought maybe it was underwatering
since the house is very dry. How can I
check the roots since they are all
hidden in the pot? What should the roots
look like if they are healthy? Also,
this plant is quite large, how do I
split it into two pots? I have trimmed
some of the brown parts off the leaves
and wiped off all the dust.
