Description

This decorative house plant is perfect for a bright and humid room, well away from the direct glare of the sun. Its marbled leaves bring a tropical feel to your home and purify the air of harmful toxins. This eye-catching foliage plant forms a neat and bushy clump while young, but later sheds the lower leaves to reveal a bare stem, creating a palm-effect at maturity. As its name suggests, Dieffenbachia 'Compacta' is a more compact variety which won’t quickly outgrow its space. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Please note: Dieffenbachia is also known as the Dumb Cane as the sap is known to numb the mouth if ingested, and is toxic if eaten.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Position Dieffenbachia plants in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). Choose a bright position in good light, but away from the glare of strong sun. Dieffenbachia copes well in shaded position.
More Info
Water Dieffenbachia freely between spring and autumn using tepid rainwater where possible, and allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to completely dry out. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Dieffenbachia appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant.
Caution

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes,toxic if eaten
