I'm Killing My Corn Plants! Help!
I've sort of got a black thumb when it comes to gardening, can you guys please give me some advice? Here's the history of my corn plant: bought it at Home Depot about 7 weeks ago, it never looked super-healthy, but about 4 weeks ago the leaves started turning brown and about 2 weeks ago it got really bad. I know you are supposed to let them dry out between waterings, and I have been doing so, I usually water about once every 9 days or so. I've fertilized once with Miracle Gro right when I first got the plants after repotting them into the terracotta planters they are currently in. As you can tell from the pictures that follow, the corn plant is about 1 ft away from a south facing window that doesn't get too much sun because there's an apartment building and a big fence blocking the direct sun. The temp in my condo is usually about 60 degrees F and unfortunately there is pretty much no humidity to speak of (hey, it's winter in Colorado).
Last week, the plants leaves started wilting and turning a pale green/yellow color in addition to the browning. There are no obvious signs of pests. HELP!!!!
Is there any hope for it?
I'm new and I don't know how to embed an image into my post, so here are some links to pictures of my poor corn plant.
& On this last one, I took these at night and had to use flash, but hopefully you can see that the leaves are yellowing and turning pale.
