SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Loose, loamy potting soil mix is the best option for growing corn plants.

  • You don't need to feed in Winter or feed newly repotted plants.

  • They do best in light shade or gently filtered sunlight.
  • The leaves will scorch if too bright and if it's too dark the new leaves will be quite small and the stripe(s) may look quite different to those found on the older ones.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • These plants benefit from a little "drying time" between waterings.
  • So water well and then wait for the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering again.
