About Dumbcane Tropic Snow

Dieffenbachia was cultivated in England before 1759 and upper Amazon indigenous groups are known to have used their calcium oxalates to make poison arrows. Dieffenbachia flowers can generate large amounts of excess heat which botanists believe attracts potential pollinators to the flower's warmth. 🐝

I started my dieffenbachia from a stem cutting a year ago (2020). I put it in water placed it near a lamp with a full spectrum bulb. It grew roots very quickly! I potted it once the roots were big enough. Since then it’s taken off like wildfire! Each new leaf is larger than the other. I love it! Note: Yes, it’s low light TOLERANT, but leaves will grow larger with some sunshine.
