Dracaena frargrans 'White Stripe'

Very similar to 'massangeana' in that the white stripe runs through the edge of the leaf, however it tends to have long & slim leaves. The white edge is also bolder and more distinctive. 

Origin: Tropical East Africa

Height: Grows slowly but can reach 1.6 ft 

Light: Care should be taken to keep it away from drafts and direct sun, which can scorch the leaves. Will tolerate low light.

Water: This easy-care house plant will tolerate many abuses, but be careful not to over-water or over-fertilize. Droopy, yellow leaves are a sign it's overwatered and may indicate root rot. Be sure to use a container with a drainage hole and never allow the plant to stand in water.

Humidity: Average to moderate humidity. Mist your corn plant once per day with a spray bottle that has been filled with water. This is necessary because corn plants require a humid environment.

Temperature: Average room temperatures 60-75°F, 16-24°C work fine for corn plant. Care should be taken that it isn't exposed to temperatures below 55°F/13°C.

Soil: Any good potting mix that drains well.

Fertilizer: Apply a 3-1-2 fertilizer every three months to the soil surrounding the corn plant
