Corn Plant Stalks Yellow

smarie_2011July 29, 2011

I was recently given a corn plant by a friend who said she "killed" her plant. The cp has one lg center branch & 4stalks, all stalks are yellow/brown in color and the leaves have fallen off the entire stalk EXCEPT the very top of 3 of the 4 stalks. The leaves that are trying to grow are very pretty green. I know to only water about every 2wks, so I don't think that is an issue. I do wonder about pot is only about 2ft tall and in a large pot. Does anyone have any advice on how to stop the yellowing and get the leaves flourishing? I think it still has life... thank you!
