Planting and care

With a minimum temperature of 5 degrees C (41 degrees 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.
