The Dieffenbachia or Dumb Cane plant makes a great houseplant. They are fairly easy going, which makes them a good plant to start with.
During the warmer growing seasons, Dumb Cane plants like regular moisture and don’t want to dry out.
I have found a weekly watering schedule is ideal for mine.
Dumb Cane leaves have gorgeous variations and patterns. A good amount of indirect light keeps them looking vibrant.
The name comes from the plant’s milky sap. Be cautious with this plant around young children and pets as chewing it can cause unpleasant symptoms.
As the plant grows, it loses its lower leaves resulting in gorgeous green canes or stalks.
Here’s to growing happy healthy Dumb Cane plants!
