Planting and 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.

During the winter season watering should be reduced.
17 to 27 degrees C 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.

Caring for Dieffenbachia Camilla

  • When potting or repotting plants, springtime is best just before the growing season begins.
