Any tips for growing a houseplant?

The plants are about 2 ft. tall and look like palm trees. They have long narrow leaves from about half way up to the top. The leaves are striped dark green and white/off white. They were planted together, 2 of them, but I potted them in separate pots, and now they are dying. I don't know the name and cant find a pic of em on Google.com. Do you know what I'm talking about?

  • Super thrive helps plants get out of transplant shock. It's a plant hormone.

  • I would try some plant food of some sort, and water them so the dirt stays moist.... But don't overwater them or you might give them root-rot which will ultimately kill your plant.
