HOW TO CARE DIEFFENBACHIA PLANT;
Dieffenbachia prefer soil that is consistently and lightly moist, but not soggy. Generally, aim to water when the top 1”- 2” of the soil is dry, but if the plant is in a lower light condition, it can comfortably dry out a little further.
Dieffenbachia is a tropical plant that grows well indoors in lots of indirect light
. It can tolerate low light, but its growth will slow dramatically. Given more light, it will quickly begin to grow again.
These easy-to-grow houseplants have green leaves with creamy or yellowish blotches. Because dumb canes grow upright, they are excellent for placing at an empty bedroom wall or in a shady corner
. The bright leaves add texture and color to any room without the need for flowers.
The Dieffenbachia is right in between. It has thin roots, so it can't tolerate wet soil for too long, but it also doesn't store a lot of moisture by itself. This is why you should water your Dieffenbachia regularly, but not too often. Once per week or once every two weeks is usually the right time to water your plant.
