HELP!!! dying dracaena fragrans (corn plant)

Posted by albur_18 (My Page) on

Can somebody please help me. About a month ago i bought a dracaena fragrans massangea, or corn plant, and it isnt doing too well. Many of the leaves, especially the ones towards the bottom, and many of the larger leaves, are turning yellow, then brown, and dying completely. What is happening here? I water it about once a week and occasionally mist the leaves, and I've read that it doesnt need much light. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? Thanks

Well, what do you mean by not much light... maybe not full sun, but it will need some light. When you water, is the soil totally dry? The water may be running down the dry soil on the outside of the soil between the pot and soil OR there is no drainage and that's too much water and it's rotting. Those are my two guesses.
