I inherited the enclosed plant. It used to have leaves on the top off the stem that fell off . could you name this plant & tell me how to manage it, should I cut the stem?
The plant in your picture is most likely a corn plant, Dracaena fragrans.
Please find detailed instructions for its growing requirements and care here. for aesthetic reasons you could either cut the stem back to a few inches above the healthy leaves, or wait and see if new growth arises from it.
