I received this plant 4 months ago, and the tips of the leaves are turning brown. I thought it was over watered so I stopped watering it and it still is losing the ends of the leaves. I am not sure what kind of plant this is, it has a cane type base. Thanks for everyones help.

This is a corn plant.I have several of them and the biggest one is over 6 feet tall! They can get real big. I don't know what I'm going to do if it continues to grow! They are pretty hardy but they do loose leaves once in awhile. Make sure it gets some sunlight but not direct. Good luck with it.
I think this is called a (Cane Corn Plant or Dracaena Fragans) here is a link to see the picture & a link to see the care of this Plant... My daughter has one.. When.the leaf tips go brown it's from underwatering it .. hope this helps www.ellisonsgreenhouses.com/
I am not positive of the name but I had one that was the size of a small tree years ago and think it's official name is Dracena.
They originated in the tropics, so providing an area of high humidity or misting might help keep the tips on the leaves.
It does look like a corn plant. I'm not sure how to care for it, though I did have one once and it was not in direct light. I put it on the porch in the summer and it got wind-burned. We moved shortly after and left it.
They do have the most wonderfully delicious-smelling flowers though.
It looks like a Yucca. Check in out on the web.
It is a corn plant. Rule of thumb with any plant is, yellow leaves, too much water or not enough light, brown edges, not enough water. Indirect light would be best for your corn plant, or a north window.
I believe it is a dracaena
I did a search on google and found a lot of links, then I went to the image portion and I think I see a plant like yours.
DRACINA , related to corn plant
I have the same plant but mine is all green but it is a Dracaena Marginata.
This plant is a dracaena, also known as ribbon plant.
If there is any leaf loss in the upper portion of the plant the top can be removed and rooted to form a new plant.
It's also called an Amazon Sword plant when you buy it for a Fish tank. It grows under water quite nicely .& then if you want you can take it out of the water & grow it in a planter , It grows quite nicely in either place .
Thank you for reminding me of it .
