Dieffenbachia 🌿✨, also known as Dumb Cane, is a popular houseplant admired for its lush, variegated leaves. Here are some care tips for this tropical beauty:
- 💡 Light: Place it in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
- 💦 Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry before watering again.
- 🌡️ Temperature: It prefers average room temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Protect it from cold drafts.
- 🌿 Humidity: It appreciates higher humidity levels, so misting or placing it on a tray with water and pebbles can help.
- 🌱 Soil: Use well-draining potting soil to prevent waterlogging and root rot.
- ⏳ Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer every month during the growing season (spring and summer).
- 🍃 Pruning: Trim to control its size and shape, and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves.
- 🚫 Toxicity: Keep away from pets and children, as its sap is toxic and can cause irritation if ingested.
