I'm Dracaena Fragrans Massangeana But You Can Call Me Corn Plant
I BOUGHT THIS TROPICAL TREE AT HOME DEPOT, SINCE BUYING IT THE LEAVES ARE DRYING UP AND TURING BROWN, THE INSTRUCTIONS SAID NO DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND TO KEEP THE SOIL MOIST. WHY ARE THE LEAVES DYING ANY TIPS OR ADVICE WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. Stephanie
It does appear to be a Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans massangeana).Â This houseplant can tolerate low light levels and drier moisture during the winter. If the sunlight from the sliding glass down is hitting the leaves directly, it could cause a burning issue with the leaves.Â However if that isn't the case, we need determine the moisture content of the plant.Â The tricky thing is we need to know what the the moisture was couple weeks ago and what it is now.Â If the roots were too soggy or too dry a couple weeks ago, the leaves would brown at the tips.Â If the plant is moist but not soggy right now, you may have corrected the problem.Â If the plant is soggy or extremely dry, the moisture level needs to be corrected.Â It usually take a little while for damage to show and even longer for the plant to recover.Â Correct your moisture, be patient and the damage should stop.Â Watch for new leaves.Â The new leaves should be fine. Good Luck and keep me posted.
