Compared with other indoor plants
, corn plant
requires less water. Watering once a week is enough
and they may be watered again until the surface soil of the pot is dry. A tray should be placed under the pot. It is required to water the plants
slowly until the water flows out from the pot bottom, and then drain the excessive water in the tray after 30 min. Too much water and poor drainage may cause the leaves to fall. At ordinary time, appropriate water mists can be sprayed toward the leaves to increase the ambient humidity and prevent the leave edges from drying.
It should be noted that corn plant
is sensitive to the fluoride in tap water. With long-term use of tap water, there may be dark spots or yellow edges on their leaves, so it is recommended to use collected rainwater or pure water
. Alternatively, the tap water may be stored in a container for one night, and watering can be done after the fluoride is reduced.
