Common name: Dumbcane or leopard lily
Height: 4 to 5 feet.
Difficulty level: Easy.
Planting & Care
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 house plant 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 responds well to hot temperatures and dry climates.
Sunlight: Bright light but not direct sunlight.
Soil: Well draining soil.
Water: Lots of water during the summer. Soil stays moist but not wet.
During the winter season watering should be reduced.
Temprature: Normal temperature 17–27 °C
Fertilizer: During the primary growing season – March Through October – feed every other week when watering using a complete liquid food. During the winter months use NO fertilizer and water only.
- When potting or repotting plants, springtime is best just before the growing season begins.
- Rotate the dieffenbachia house plant regularly to provide adequate light to all sides of the plant and prevent it from reaching toward the light on one side.
- The large and showy dieffenbachia can be the perfect living decoration for the home or office.
It’s also important to note that the leaves, if chewed or eaten, can cause temporary swelling of the tongue and throat, leading to a temporary loss of speech. While this is usually not serious, it can cause suffocation. Avoid placing the dumbcane plant where curious children or pets might be tempted to taste it.
