Dracaena fragrans

Dracaena fragrans (Corn Plant) is a strongly upright, evergreen shrub with a stout tan topped by rosette of long & sword shaped green shiny leaves. The plant tends to drop its lower leaves. Mature Dracaena can reach over 6’ feet in height with leaves spanning up to 2’ long, though they can be trimmed to fit smaller spaces.

Dracaena fragrans are known for their fragrant flowers and beautiful foliage. While flowering is much less common when grown as a houseplant, mature Dracaena may flower indoors under the correct growing conditions which mimic their natural habitat. 

Corn plant flowers emerge from pink colored buds into masses of white flowers that open in the evening. They have a highly fragrant, sweet scent. The flower stalks can range in size from a few inches in length for an indoor plant up to 3 feet (90 cm) long for a large outdoor tree.

Origin: Tropical East Africa

Height: Grows up to 10-15 ft. tall (300-450 cm)

Width: 3-4 ft. wide (90-120 cm)

Light: Dracaena does need to be kept at a brightly lit spot without direct sunlight. Brown scorch marks on leaves are caused by hot, direct sunlight.

Foliage plants in general need access to bright indirect sunlight. Avoid keeping them in direct sunlight as it can cause leaves to burn due to extreme sunlight in the afternoon.

Make sure watering is done once the soil goes dry. Although the soil can remain moist, but it should not turn soggy/wet. Having drainage hole in the pots goes a long way in ensuring there is no water stagnating on top of the soil. You can spray the plant occasionally.
