Additional information
Dieffenbachia is a perennial herbaceous plant with straight stem, simple and alternate leaves containing white spots and flecks, making it attractive as indoor foliage. Species in this genus are popular as houseplants because of their tolerance of shade. Its common name is "dumb cane."
Dimensions
Height: 35-45cm and Width: 25-35cm
Care instructions
With a minimum temperature of 5?C (41?F), dieffenbachia must be grown indoors in temperate areas. They need light, but filtered sunlight through a window is usually sufficient. They also need moderately moist soil, which should be regularly fertilized with a proprietary houseplant fertilizer. Leaves will periodically roll up and fall off to make way for new leaves. Yellowing of the leaves is generally a sign of problematic conditions, such as a nutrient deficiency in the soil. Dieffenbachia respond well to hot temperatures and dry climates.

Soil type
The Dieffenbachia plant likes a well-draining soil. It?s best to use 2 parts peat moss and 1 part perlite. Another good choice is to use an African violet mix.
Watering instructions
When deciding on how much to water your ?Dieffs?, it?s important to keep in mind that they are from the aroid family. Their cousins are Aglaonema, Spathiphyllum and Philodendron. It means that Dieffenbachias like himidity a lot. During the summer, it?s also importnat to provide a lot of water. Soil has to stay moist but never fully wet ? being wet can promote the root rot. During the winter, all the watering should be reduced.

Safety information
Dieffenbachia leaves and stems are poisonous if eaten. If ingested, it can paralyze the voice, and larger quantities can paralyze the whole body or to even be fatal. Therefore, it?s important not to play with this plant! The sap from this plant is toxic and it can cause allergic reactions, painful rashes, numbness and other problems. When handling the plant, avoid getting any of the sap in your eyes or mouth. It?s always best to wear gloves when working on this plant. It?s also vital to keep it away from children and pets. Never put your Dieffenbachia somewhere where a child or a pet can reach it (and never underestimate kids and pets ? they are curious and can reach places you wouldn?t think they can).

Room temperature
The Dieffenbachia plant can do well outdoors, but it?s also easily grown indoors. It generally thrives on year-round temperatures around 65 to 75 degrees F. Keep in mind that this plant is not a fan of low temperatures and it shouldn?t be kept on temperatures below 60 degrees F.
Room position
When it comes to light, it?s important to remember that it can?t handle full sun but it does thrive in good lighting. It will do well on a kitchen window, for example. Make sure to never expose it to very bright light. It can make it sickly and weak.
Annual
No
Feeding instructions
This also depends on the growing season. During the growing season, meaning, March to October, you should feed it every other week, when watering. It?s best to use a complete liquid food. During the winter months you should not fertilize at all ? this is when you should water only, and make sure to reduce even that one.
