Dieffenbachia Green Magic

Dieffenbachia Green Magic


The Dieffenbachia has become popular with its gorgeous variegated leaves. Its nicknamed the 'Dumb Cane' as, if ingested, it can leave you without the ability to speak for a few hours - so perhaps not an ideal choice for those with small children or nibbly pets.

Light: Indirect sunlight. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. These plants will appreciate a bright room, although can also tolerate moderately lit rooms as well.

Watering: Allow top soil to dry out before watering again to prevent over-saturation and root rot. Water less often during late autumn and winter months.

Soil: Well draining soil is essential. Two parts peat-fred soil, one part perlite.

Temperature: Happy between temperatures of 17°c to 27°c.

Repotting: Repot every 2 to 3 years, ideally in spring. Increase pot size by 2cm to encourage plant growth. 

Plant Care Level: Beginner
