This plant needs to be watered every 2-3 days?
Is anyone able to identify this plant? I’ve had it for just over a year now and this plant needs to be watered about 2-3 days or else all the leaves get droopy.
It looks like Dracaena Fragrans (cornstalk dracaena) to me!
You may need to repot I have had the same issue but way better now after repotting!
Can you tell us more about your plant (pot type and size, if it's been repotted, soil type, if there is drainage, etc)? Usually they only want to be watered every 1-2 weeks as they like to almost totally dry out in between.

Edit: haha, what @Leah_eve staid
@PlantMompy The plant is still in a 5” nursery pot. i have not repotted the plant since i brought it home a year ago. I don’t know the type of soil but it definitely doesn’t hold water that well. there are drainage holes at the bottom of the nursery pot. the plant is about 28” tall
I'd definitely say time for a repot! I'd recommend going up 2", but depending upon the root ball you may need more room. All you info about pot type, soil type, etc should be on your plant card BUT we are happy to help if you have questions!
