Potted Dracaena fragrans 'victoria' / 'victoriae' (Yellow Corn plant)
An oldie but goldie in the houseplant scene, the Yellow Corn plant often goes by the name Corn Plant, or by its official Latin name of Dracaena fragrans. In return for a little bit of care and attention from time to time, the Corn Plant will show off its shiny good looking leaves and removal various indoor air toxins. If you treat it very well, after many years you should get a bold ascent specimen with multiple crowns and the opportunity for it to produce a small spray of fragrant white flowers. Simply beautiful with minimum effort. 'Victoria' is very similar to D. fragrans 'massangeana' in that it features a wide yellow stripe that runs through the middle of the leaf (leaves sprout from a brown textured stem, more correctly known as a Ti Tree), however it tends to have smaller but wider and almost triangular leaves. The Yellow corn stripe is also bolder and more distinctive. This cultivar is probably the most attractive out of the four most popular varieties of the corn tree, not just because of the yellow stripe but also the leaf shape is neater and more compact. It does not grow quite as fast and commercially it can be a pain to find ;) The Corn Plant does best in light shade or gentle filtered sunlight. The leaves will scorch if it is too bright and if it's too dark the new leaves will be quite small and the stripe(s) may look quite different to those found on the older ones. If your Corn Plant is placed in a good spot with reasonable light and warm temperatures, you can keep the soil moist at all times. Otherwise, spraying the soil area with water once every 2-3 days suffice (or only when the top inch of soil is dry). Misting is a good way to prevent blemishes on the leaves as well as helping to keep the leaves dust free. The corn plant also does well in both air-conditioned and in room-temp, making them really non-fussy ;) And since it is really slow growing, it hardly needs repotting!
