Help on corn plant

stillwaterllDecember 11, 2011

I got the corn plant(janet craig?) from a friend in July. It had a lot of black/grey/brownish leaves when I got it, so I cut them off. Since then it hasn't grown anything and more leaves turned bad. Do I still have a chance to save it or should I just give up on it? Thanks a lot.

stillwaterll, a healthy Dracaena deremensis 'Janet Craig' has slender stalks which are green when healthy. Black discoloration of the leaves and upper stem indicates over watering while a tan coloration of the lower section points to a dried out condition.
The former can be managed by inducing drying conditions and pruning the dead/discolored tissue.
For the latter condition, removal of the affected stalks is the best course of action.

Thanks for the tip. I'll keep an eye on the water and hold on to the plant for a while longer.
