Care Notes: If it sheds a few bottom leaves over the course of the year, this is normal.  If it sheds a few leaves within a few months or so, this is usually a sign of overwatering. Too much water can cause root rot. 

Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

*Dracaenas, Corn plants, are toxic to both humans and pets. We deem this plant safe for use with the above animals, but the more risk-averse may wish to avoid it. For more information please visits the ASPCA list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants
