Original Message Corn Plant Care
The corn plant have very shallow roots
and rarely needs repotting. It may be in
too big of a pot. They prefer to be
rootbound. You could divide, cut the
roots between the canes with a sharp
knife, then plant each division in a
smaller pot. They will tolerate lower
lighting. I think eastern lighting is
best for these plants. Feel the soil
before watering, check it weekly.
Sometimes during the winter the soil
dries out quicker because of heating our
homes. Only water when the soil feels
dry at least an inch deep. Brown edges
are common on leaves of corn plants.
