Common Name: Dumb Cane
Botanical/Scientific Name: Dieffenbachia Amoena
LIGHT: This plant prefers bright, indirect sun light for the optimal growth. It will accept lighting conditions up to full shade and continue stunted growth. Full sun will burn the leaves.
WATERING: For the best results, keep the dumb cane plant's top inch of soil moist at all times. It will tolerate extended periods of watering neglect, but the leaves will begin to shrivel. Watering makes the leaves stiffen. Before moving the plant, allow the soil to dry out. This will give the leaves a more rubbery texture which will better survive the handling process.
SOIL: This plant is not picky about its soil conditions. It will grow in almost any soil mix except sand and orchid mixtures. For best results, a one to one mixture of potting soil and perlite should be used.
HUMIDITY: Normal room humidity is fine.
FERTILISER: Once a month, high in Nitrogen to enhance evergreen leaves.
NOTE: Actual product may vary due to product enhancement.
