Dieffenbachias features pointed, broad leaves in a variety of combinations of green and white. A large, well-grown dieffenbachia can reach five feet, with leaves of a foot or more. However, the plants will rarely reach this size in typical indoor conditions.
Use these guidelines for healthy and happy dieffenbachias:
- Light: They appreciate bright light during the winter months. During the growing season, the plant prefers dappled shade or indirect light.
- Water: During the growing season, they like regular moisture and do not want to dry out. A large dieffenbachia might need to be watered twice a week. In the winter, cut back on the water.
