Dieffenbachia Amy

$15

Dieffenbachia Amy, also known as Dumb Cane Amy, shows off medium-green leaves speckled with light green. Splashes of darker green add a fun accent. Everything about the dumb cane, or dieffenbachia, is dramatic. Native to the tropics of Central and South America, it has huge variegated leaves. Even the way it grows is showy, new leaves curling up from the central stem before they unfurl. The dieffenbachia's common name, dumb cane, comes from the fact that the liquid that drips from its leaves can cause a temporary loss of speech if ingested. For that reason, this plant is not recommended for homes with small children. This is a grown up plant for grown up homes.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
A low light plant can pretty much survive anyplace inside your home as long as you have a small window or you have lights on at night.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering.
It can survive in a low humidity environment, but it will thrive with higher humidity levels.
If you mist it once a week or so it will really help the health of the leaves. Or let it steam in the bathroom once in a while as you relax.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
