Fast-Growing Tropical Plant
The vibrant Dieffenbachia plant, also known as the Dumb Cane Plant, has been rated amongst the top five house plants on the market – and understandably so. For starters, it maintains its vibrant color year-round and is low-maintenance, nearly thriving on neglect.
Even better? You control its size when you choose its container. And impressive, non-stop vitality takes hold, with oblong, large broad foliage in a colorful mixture of greens, yellows and whites that are forever present. The Dieffenbachia has the amazing ability to maintain its color and vitality through the cold months and beyond. You’ll be accompanied by the plush colors of the tropics even when there is snow on the ground.
Basically, the Dumb Cane Plant is all the beauty without the fuss. When you’re looking for an accessory to complete a specific space, the Dieffenbachia fits the bill. Whether you desire a 2-inch table plant, or a 5-foot floor arrangement, the Dieffenbachia is second to none.
Our only recommendation: don't ingest the leaves or touch the plant's milky sap! The leaves contain a poison that can cause a temporary inability to speak if ingested (giving the plant its namesake, "dumb"). Also, the plant’s milky sap can irritate the skin. It’s recommended that children and pets be kept far from reach of the plant, but otherwise, this magnificent tropical beauty is a prime pick.

Planting & Care
During the winter months, the Dieffenbachia enjoys bright light. As for spring and summer, it does well with indirect light / dappled shade.
This plant prefers warm temperatures. Be sure to keep it away from drafty areas and where temps don’t drop below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Planting in Container / Watering
Make sure there are adequate drain holes in the bottom of the container and water your plant lightly, keeping the soil consistently moist, but not soggy. A good rule of thumb is to put your finger in the soil to check its level of moisture. There is no need to water your Dieffenbachia until you have a full inch of dryness starting from the top of the soil.
Easy to maintain. It will let you know if it needs attention. A general rule of thumb is to not let it dry out, but it is quite forgiving if the regime goes a bit astray. Keep consistent moisture level throughout the year.
Remember to wear gloves when exposure to the sap is possible. Do not come in direct contact with the sap.
