Dieffenbachia Plants – Indoor And Office

Another name for the beautiful but poisonous (but not at all dangerous) Dieffenbachia Plants is the Dumb Cane plant. The easy-to-grow houseplant is native to the tropics of Mexico and Argentina and the large, oblong-shaped leaves come in shades of green, white, cream or yellow.

You need to know the different varieties because you get a small type that fits onto your table, but you also get the larger one that can grow close to 6 ft tall.

How to Care for Dieffenbachia Plants :

  • Avoid too much moisture with this indoor pot plant.
  • The plant wants to be planted in well-draining soil.
  • It will enjoy a light watering where the soil is moist but never drenched and soggy.
  • The Dieffenbachia looks for filtered light where the sun shines through a sheer-type of the curtain. You don’t want the new, tender leaves which emerge in spring to be burnt by direct sunlight.
  • A good idea with the plant is to rotate it so that it gets adequate light on all sides to encourage even, balanced growing.
  • Fertilize once or twice in the growing season to encourage healthy growth.  You can use any general-purpose houseplant fertilizer and check out the directions of how to do this on the packaging.
  • For your Dieffenbachia Plants to thrive, it may require repotting. You may find it stops producing new leaves or the water rushes through the pot with watering. It may simply need new soil and a new pot to give it a new lease on life.
