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.
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.
Bright indirect light, to full indoor sunlight.
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.
Dieffenbachia appreciate an occasional gentle misting.
