Dieffenbachia Green Magic

£24.00

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

*Plant does not come with pot.
