- Corn Cane Care 101
To unlock the full potential of your Corn Cane's sugary charm, a little TLC goes a long way. This sweet companion thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. It prefers moist but well-draining soil. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again and use room temperature water. Fertilize the plant monthly during the growing season using a balanced houseplant fertilizer. Keep it happy by maintaining a regular watering routine and occasionally misting its leaves to promote healthy growth.
