Dracaena fragrans (corn plant) - new leaves look GREAT, but...
So I have this corn plant that, three years ago, I horribly neglected, and I had to cut away many dead parts on the leaves (I'd read online that this was ok). Three years later, the plant has sprouted a new set of beautiful leaves - bright, healthy and perky - from the center of one of the old leaf clusters.
The problem is that the edges of all the leaves I cut back turned brown. It looks bad.
Is there a way to cut back Dracaena leaves and not have the cut edges turn brown? Can I take the worst of them and cut all the way back to the stem or just remove Ã¢ÂÂem entirely? I was hoping this might make the plant focus its energy on the beautiful new leaves.
THANKS - you guys are always so knowledgeable!
