(Note: This is a controversial plant - mostly listed as safe - however, I have seen references that suggest that this plant is toxic to children and plants, if ingested. The OSU Center for Vet. Health Sciences lists is as non-toxic, but possible stomach-ache. Maybe it's a matter of quantity. Please discuss with your vet.)
The Corn plant has long leaves stemming from a wooden cane like stalk. The variegated leaves resemble corn foliage thus the name. The foliage using contains a yellow or crème center with dark green borders.
