However, the corn plant is especially good for improving air quality, as it also absorbs toxins. The NASA Clean Air Study found that Dracaena plants remove toxic substances from the air.

  • The plant was first introduced to Europe in the 1700s, where it became popular as a houseplant. It wasn’t until the early 1900s that the corn plant made a name for itself in the United States, but it rapidly gained support thanks to how easy it is to grow and care for, along with its tall and elegant style.
  • Native to Upper Guinea in Africa, the corn plant originates from a tropical climate, where it grows in humid forests. The ‘true’ corn plant, Dracaena fragrans, has solid green leaves and is often found growing surrounded by taller vegetation, which provides it with shade. It gets its name from the highly fragrant flowers it produces, which open after dark.
  • The Dracaena Corn Plant is a slow growing, sometimes flowering, shrub which is wildly popular as a houseplant. The scientific name for the corn plant is Dracaena fragrans, which is the true corn plant in its native and original form, with solid dark green leaves.
  • In return for a little bit of care and attention from time to time, the Corn Plant will show off its shiny good looking leaves and removal various indoor air toxins. If you treat it very well, after many years you should get a bold ascent specimen with multiple crowns and the opportunity for it to produce a small spray of fragrant white flowers.
