Thumb of 2016-05-30/Verygreenthumbs/6a03a4

I just got this plant and absolutely love it. However I have no idea what type of plant it is or how to really take care of it? Someone help me out!! I think it's slowly dying.

It's a Dracaena but I'm not certain which one; possibly Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans 'Massangeana')

Hi & welcome! It's D. 'Lemon Lime.' From what I can see in the pic, it looks fine.

Care would be the same for any version of D. fragrans. Water when dry. Whenever possible, avoid tap water by using rain, distilled, or condensate from a dehumidifier or A/C. Repot & change soil every 1-2 yrs. Prefers to stay above about 50°.

Which way does that window face? If not E or W, it may not be getting enough light.
