Dieffenbachia's are often given a hard time, when actually their care requirements are pretty simple. Follow a few simple guidelines and you'll be rewarded with one of the best houseplants a green-fingered fellow could ask for. Water a little at a time and more regularly - they don't appreciate a sporadic drenching. They also suit low,  dappled lighting which most of our homes offer plentifully as the sun moves around our homes. Rotate your Dumb can often to encourage straight growth.

Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Dumb Cane | Compacta Care Guide

A well-draining potting mix is the Dumb cane's number one priority as they like a consistently moist, but not soggy soil. Improper lighting will show on the leaves if it's not happy - so it's best to position in in a filtered light position - such as sunlight that shines through a sheer curtain.

    Rescue Me!

    I ordered 4x plants, 2 of which were 'Rescue Me', so I wasn't too sure how much rescuing they would need, but all plants arrived quickly, well packaged and in very healthy condition. Fantastic value overall and would definitely order again with no concerns.
