Dieffenbachia Care Guide

This plant does better in a low light environment. Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachia) will sunburn if they get any direct sun at all, and the leaves will yellow and curl.

Check the soil to make sure it is dry an inch down before watering the Dieffenbachia plant. Plant the Dumb Cane in well-draining soil and water lightly, keeping the soil consistently moist, but not soggy.

The Dieffenbachia plant does well as a houseplant, thriving with year-round room temperatures averaging 65°-75° F. Temperatures below 60° F can harm the plant.
