Couldn't fault their service or plant quality. I live in Northern Ireland and it is extremely difficult at the moment to have a plant delivered it came in good time and plant was in excellent condition will use them again. I got a few peace lilies for an addition to my aquarium set up and doing great! Thanks

I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

I ordered the 3 plant bundle. John contacted me as there was an issue getting hold of the blue pots so I chose a different colour. Plants arrived promptly, although one had a damaged pot. John sent a replacement along with a bag of compost so I could repot it. Great communication, good value. Highly recommended.

How To Care For Dracaena Fragrans ‘Janet Craig’

Go light with the watering and wait for the soil to dry out thoroughly before topping up again. Never let your Corn plant sit in water as the roots are sensitive to water-logged soil and it will soon die back. Also, if possible use filtered water as it is quite sensitive to fluoride in tap water, you can buy distilled water from your supermarket or use a water filter if you have one at home.

Keep in a well-lit area away from direct sunlight. Filtered light by a south-facing window is the perfect spot. If left out in direct sunlight for too long, your corn plant may start to suffer from scorched leaves and cause it to wilt. Too little sunlight will stunt your corn plant’s growth and also cause it to wilt.

Go heavy on the misting for this ol’ girl, she loves a pamper – or keep in the bathroom. You ideally want to keep your Dracaena Fragrans in a warm humid room where possible and avoid any cold drafts.

Choose a nutrient-rich, loamy soil for your corn plant which is well-draining and consider adding perlite or granite to your compost mix for even better drainage. Top up with fresh soil annually to provide a natural boost of organic nutrients.

Use a balanced fertilizer monthly during spring and summer to encourage growth and optimum health, but cut right back during winter. You could consider using a natural fertiliser like worm castings or a slow-releasing fertiliser if you don’t want to keep track of your fertilising schedule.

If using fertiliser is new to you, read our “How to Fertilise Your Houseplant” page!

Check your corn plant for spider mites, scale and thrips which is common amongst many houseplants. Dust the leaves regularly to sweep away any pests or apply diluted neem oil to keep them at bay. You can also opt to shower your corn. plant’s leaves down in the shower for a quick solution.

If you think your plant is suffering from a pest or disease, take a look at our Pests and Infections page!

You should consider repotting your corn plant bi-annually into a slightly bigger pot to avoid it becoming root-bound. Be careful not to damage its delicate roots when you do a transplant and don’t pack the soil in too tightly into its new home to allow for proper drainage.

Wondering how to repot your houseplant? Take a look at our repotting guide. It has all the information you’ll need!

About Dracaena Fragrans ‘Janet Craig’

Dracaena Fragrans ‘Janet Craig’ are a popular choice amongst houseplant enthusiasts for their unique character and style. Reaching heights of up to 15 metres in Africa, it grows so easily they’re even used as a hedgerow, but indoors in the UK, it isn’t going to grow at a rate of knots. Corn plants grow from their thick canes (aka mass cane) and produce long thin leaves from the top.

Native tribes of northern Tanzania and Mt. Kilimanjaro used corn plants to mark sacred sites as far back as 1000 BC, so you can mark your home as a sacred site with the corn plant which was known to bring good luck and fortune.

Also popular for their easy-care nature, they can take a fair bit of neglect and abuse before they start to kick up a fuss. But, you really want to avoid over-watering as otherwise, it will quickly fall out with you.
