Golden Heart Corn Plant has large, strap-like leaves variegated with green and yellow. It tolerates a wide range of light conditions from bright indirect to low light. Grows to 10-12 feet.
One of the newer varieties of Dracaena, 'Golden Heart' has wide, upright foliage with yellow stripes. Over time, it will grow as tall as 6' and develop a thick, woody trunk. Definitely a recommendation for a beginner, these plants can tolerate somewhat long periods without water and can tolerate a bit of overwatering, too. While it can grow in fairly dark areas, 'Golden Heart' prefers slightly brighter spots (think eastern exposure). If grown in less than ideal light levels, the colors will appear muted and duller than expected.
