Dracaena fragrans 'Massangeana', or corn plant, is a tall indoor plant with broad, arching, foliage growing from a woody cane. The graceful variegated leaves are an attractive green color with a yellow stripe running down the center. The plant isn't fussy and requires a low level of maintenance to keep it looking its best. If conditions are just right, the plant may develop fragrant, night-blooming flowers.
Place Dracaena fragrans 'Massangeana' in low or moderate light. Avoid sunny, hot windows and direct, bright light. Room temperatures should be approximately 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and about 10 degrees cooler at night.
Water the plant when the soil feels dry to the touch. Water deeply with lukewarm water, then allow the excess water to drain freely through the drainage hole. Never allow the pot to stand in water. Dracaena is prone to root rot in soggy soil.
Clean the plant regularly, using a soft, damp cloth. Build-up of dust on the leaves will block sunlight air circulation.
Feed the plant with an all-purpose liquid houseplant fertilizer during spring and summer. Apply the fertilizer according to the recommendations on the label. Withhold fertilizer during fall and winter.
