Help me i dentify plant and save it from dying

Postby Milly101 » Nov 19, 2010 3:27 pm

I have this plant in my house, I have no idea what kinda plant it is but I have noticed that it is dying.

I don't think I am over wattering it, unless is am underwattering it, but it has been like this for over a month and does not seem to get any better.

Please help as I would hate to see it dye.

I have attached a pic of it.

Kind of looks like a corn plant (Dracaena Fragrans) to me.

They do like defused sunlight to thrive.
Place the plant in a location where it gets light, just not direct sunlight. Best location is to the side of a south or east window. The plant can be directly in front of the window only if the window is covered by a shear curtain. The leaves may start to turn very light green if the plant is getting too much direct sunlight. Also, the plant should not be in a draft, and that includes a breeze from an open window.

They also don't like to be moved, so if you have moved it recently it will take some tome to recover.

If the leaves are razor-sharp and rigid, then it's a yucca. Corn plants have supple leaves. It looks more like a yucca to me...

Looks like a tropical yucca. I don't think it's getting enough light. They need direct sun if at all possible.

Good luck.
