Dieffenbachia or Dumb Cane Plants, native to the tropics of Mexico and all the way south to Argentina, are relatively easy-care houseplants with large, broad, patterned, oblong leaves. They can be small table plants or 5ft-6ft. trees depending on the variety you select. Dieffenbachias are fast-growing houseplants that tend to get top heavy if not properly pruned. All parts of a Dieffenbachia are extremely poisonous which is how they earned the nickname “dumb cane plant”and should be kept away from pets and children.
LIGHT CONDITIONS: Dieffenbachia Houseplants require medium to high light. Direct sun burns the leaves and too much bright light causes the vibrant leaf colour to fade. When an indoor Dieffenbachia Plant does not get enough light, the new leaves are small and far apart on the stem.
WATER CONDITIONS: Water Dieffenbachia Houseplants well and then allow the top 2"-3" of soil to dry out before watering again. These plants do best when watered on a regular schedule.
