How do I take care of a corn plant ?

Corn plant is a kind of tropical houseplant that grows with yellow, dark green striated leaves from eight to forty-eight inches long. They can grow with the height of up to twenty feet and thirty inches in width. This plant can survive in a low light but a defused sunlight is needed to make it bloom. Corn plant turns yellow and brown if not taken care of.

It is very easy to take care of your corn plant. Like most plants, placing them where there is sunlight is the first thing you should do but remember not to put them where there is direct sunlight exposure. One great place to put your corn plant is in front of a curtain-covered window. You will know that your corn plant’s location is wrong if you see the leaves turning light green. This means you have to transfer your corn plant in a place where there is less sunlight. Another way to keep make your plat grow is to keep them from airflow or even an open window breeze.

In watering your corn plant, use water stored for at least forty-eight hours before watering the plant. It is time to water your corn plant when you see the top of the soil dry. This means that you have to water your corn plant only around every two to three weeks, depending on the climate. Pour water near the stalk of your corn plant, the roots are short and it may be difficult for the plant to reach the water. You can use a water gauge to monitor the soil, place it near the stalk two inches deep for accurate information.

Corn plant can grow even in a small pot with no problems because their roots are small. Using larger pot is just to keep the corn plant from falling due to its height and having a small base. If you want your corn plant at a specific height, you can pull out the new growth’s center. You can clean the leaves with damped cloth or place it in the shower for quick rinse.
