Light: Place your Dieffenbachia somewhere it will get bright, indirect light. Make sure to avoid any direct light as the large leaves will burn. Dieffenbachia may tolerate medium indirect light but be mindful of how often your plant is watered if kept in lower light conditions.
Water: Water when about half of the soil has gone dry. Dieffenbachia do not like to sit in soggy soil. In the winter months when days are shorter you may need to water less. Make sure you check the soil every time before watering.
Did you know? Dieffenbachia are sometimes called Dumb Cane. This is because of a chemical compound produced by the plant which if ingested can cause numbness in the mouth and impair speech. This compound isn't poisonous! Just a mild irritant. This is definitely one you'll want to keep away from curious kids and pets!
