Dieffenbachia 6" Pot
Lighting: Deiffenbachia like plenty of light but they will tolerate low-light spots, as well.
Humidity: Just like most tropical houseplants, grow dieffenbachia in a relatively warm, humid spot. If the leaves develop brown tips or edges, the air may be too dry. Remedy this by relocating your dieffenbachia to a well-lit bathroom (or other humid spot), grouping it with other houseplants (which release moisture into the air as they breathe).
Watering: Dieffenbachia plants like regular watering, but they don't ever want the soil to be wet or soggy for extended periods. Because more indoor plants die from over watering than under watering every year, it's best to keep dieffenbachia on the dry side if you're in doubt about whether to water it.
Fertilization: At minimum, it's best to fertilize dieffenbachia once or twice a year, but you can do so more often if you wish.
