Dieffenbachia maculata is a beauty that offers light green leaves edged in dark green and with a striking white vein running through the center of each leaf. The plant prefers bright to medium light and high humidity due to its normal habit of growing in tropical rain forests.
It will grow in almost full sunlight once acclimated, but for best growth give it a bit of subdued light.

Common name(s): Dumbcane Plant, Dumb Cane Plant, Mother-in-law Plant, Tuftroot
Flower colours: White
Bloom time: Not defined
Max reachable height: 3 to 10 feet.
Difficulty to grow: Easy

Planting and care

Dieffenbachia is propagated by cutting, tip cutting or stem cutting. With a minimum temperature of 5 degrees, 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, and should be fertilized organically
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: Direct sunlight
Soil: Well draining soil.
Water: Medium
Temperature: 18 to 29 degree Celsius
Fertilizer: Use of organic fertilizer

Caring for Dieffenbachia Maculata

  • Rotate the dieffenbachia house plant regularly to provide adequate light to all sides of the plant and prevent it from reaching towards the light on one side.
  • Watering should be when the soil feels dry to touch.
  • You should remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and throw in the garbage collector.
  • You should prune and fertilize plants with organic fertilizers.
  • When a plant grows beyond its limit and pot size not providing enough space for the spread of roots, re-pot with fresh soil and some fertilizer.
  • While re-potting, try not to disturb the roots. Avoid any drastic change in the provided environment otherwise, the plants may get stress/shock. When potting or repotting plants, spring-time is best just before the growing season begins.
  • For any insect attack or disease, you can use Neem oil, Eucalyptus oil or Citrus oil spray for primary treatment.

Typical uses of Dieffenbachia Maculata

Special features: Dieffenbachia is popular as houseplants because of their tolerance of shade.

Ornamental use: The large and showy dieffenbachia can be the perfect living decoration for the home or office.
