Hi - this is very trimmed, very sad corn plant. I live in Raleigh nc. She has been repotted since I purchased around a year ago & moved around the house but the past 5 months keeps getting sicker. The leaves yellow then brown. I water once a week around 16 oz More water? More sun? Thank you!

I would say a bigger pot with fresh potting soil and more light. Then, instead of putting your plant on a watering schedule, learn to judge when it needs water then water until the water runs out the bottom. Water when you can't feel moisture in the top inch of soil.

Do you add any nutrients to the soil? Yellow leaves could be want for nitrogen or other things.

Make sure your pot is draining really well. Stick your fingers down in it as far as they will go and make sure it is not too wet.
