A remarkable and memorable Dumb Cane, with tricolour markings across the enormous leaves in a constellation pattern. Almost random splotches of white, green and jade form the wonderful foliage that form this rare and splendid Dieffenbachia.
Certainly not on the market for long, this indirect sunshine loving specimen enjoys periods of dryness between each generous watering and a healthy dose of plant food in the Summer to bring out its marvellous colours. Appreciates high humidity, heat and hates being near radiators and midday sunlight.
A perfect way to begin your collection of the wonderful Dieffenbachia family of houseplants. Just be careful of the toxic sap.
WateringKeep it well watered in spring and summer with nice, free draining soil. During the winter go a little more sparingly, ensuring it's not exposed to cold or draughts after it's been watered.
Feeding A liquid feed during the summer months will help to bring out the vibrant colours on the lush leaves.
Tips If you notice one of the leaves starting to rot from the base, it's usually best to remove it as early as possible. This is because the rotting can breed pathogens that can spread to the rest of the plant.
Light Level Slightly on the shadier side, but will benefit from a broad range of light conditions. If you have one in a bright spot and one in a dark spot, after a while you'll notice different colouration on each plant as it adapts.
