Corn Plant Growing Instructions
Corn plant grows best in a bright spot, but tolerates low-light situations well. In areas with less light, it will grow more slowly and may show less lime-green coloration. Allow the top inch or so of the soil to dry between waterings; you'll probably find the plant needs more frequent watering in spring and summer than it does fall and winter. If the leaves develop brown tips or edges, boost humidity by grouping it with other houseplants.
In situations where it's extremely happy, corn plant will bloom, producing clusters of fragrant, creamy-white flowers. However, it doesn't bloom in most homes because it prefers more light to bear its small flowers.
While it's one of the best houseplants, corn plant is not intended for human or animal consumption.
