Light

In terms of lighting, the ideal location for this plant indoors is near a window with filtered sunlight. Too little light will result in the leaves losing their stripes, and it can cause the plant's growth to become stunted. But direct sun can burn the plant and cause it to wilt. Outdoors, the plant does best in part shade.

Water

Keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy during the growing season (spring to fall), and then reduce watering in the late fall to winter. However, the soil should never be allowed to dry out fully. Soil that is too dry can cause brown leaf tips on the plant. Moreover, like other dracaena species, corn plants are sensitive to fluoride and boron, which can be found in tap water. Thus, it's best to water with distilled water to avoid leaf tip burn, stunted growth, and even plant death.

Temperature and Humidity

Corn plants do best in temperatures around 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid keeping them in temperatures below 50 degrees. Also, try to maintain humidity levels between 40 percent and 50 percent, which mimics the plant's native conditions. If you need to raise the humidity, place the pot on a tray of water and pebbles, not allowing the bottom of the pot to touch the water, and mist the plant leaves regularly.

Soil

A loose, loamy potting soil mix is the best option for growing corn plants. The roots don't like to sit in water, so make sure the soil has good drainage.
