Plant Details

Dieffenbachia are a family of hardy, wide leafed plants grown for the ornamental patterns in their foliage. Also known as the "Dumb Cane" due to its supposed effect of making speaking difficult if ingested, Dieffenbachia are mildy toxic plants that can cause swelling and irritation if swallowed.

The Dieffenbachia does best in high light situations, but can get by in medium light after an adjustment period. They typically shed leaves immediately after being transplanted, but will sprout new growth at a rapid rate, so any yellowing leaves can be pruned away worry-free. They do not respond well to overwatering, so err on the side of caution when giving them a drink.

Product Overview

  • Light Requirements

    This is a medium light plant. It will do best in a bright location with mostly indirect light. This would be directly in front of a North or East facing window. It will also thrive 5ft-10ft removed from a West or South facing window.

    Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

    The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for an indoor plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

  • Plant Care

    A hardy tried and true houseplant native to the tropics of Mexico and the West Indies. This plant is toxic if ingested, so place it out of reach of pets and children. Please note, the Dieffenbachia endures a more dramatic transplant shock. It may lose a few leaves initially, but should stabilize in a week or two.

    CARE LEVEL
    Moderate.

    LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
    Bright indirect light, to full indoor sunlight.

    WATER REQUIREMENTS
    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Dieffenbachia like moderately moist soil, but prefer to let their top layer of soil dry out between waterings. When underwatered, the leaves will droop and turn yellow. When overwatered, the stalks of the leaves will turn slimy and slake off. Moderation is key.

    HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
    Dieffenbachia appreciate an occasional gentle misting.
