Dracaena: Mass Heavy Cane

The Dracaena Massangeana Cane (Corn Plant) derives their common name for the upright growth and graceful, variegated leaves that resemble corn foliage. Their tall height fills up the air space to enjoy from below or from a balcony looking down. Their colorful striped foliage makes an attractive addition for roomy interiors with medium to bright light. Add humidity and keep moist (but not soggy) to give them optimum results.

Plant Care:

Indirect bright is best; no direct sunlight. It can tolerate low light.

Once a week should be enough. Let the soil be a little damp or slightly dry.
