I have 3 different variety of Dieffenbachias. One of them is 15 years old. I find them to be hardy and low maintenance. Watering abojld be done after soil dries out.

I’ve had no issues with this plant since I brought her home!! None whatsoever!! Most definitely the least divalistic of all my plants by miles! I water once a week and she’s thriving beautifully on my outdoor balcony.

I keep Dieffy in my bathroom and it loves the humidity. It’s growing like a weed

Beautiful variegation in shades of pink. Easy to care for. Not super picky about its location. Seems to have minimal stress when moved from one place to another.

Too much water, too little water, too much water, too little water….very fickle. Will get dramatically droopy if not watered on schedule (will perk back up within a day or so once watered), but be careful not to over water or the leaves will turn yellow and mushy.

Definitely have had some ups and downs with her every few months. Kind of sensitive to lighting too

Needs to be watered at least once a week. I keep it by my sink in the kitchen and it seems to love the humidity as well when I am doing dishes I feel the soil and just soak it through and then forget about it!

I am by far not the most dedicated plant parent but this is doing great and it gives great confidence to plant parents who are just starting out.

I was given mine as a prop and it just took off!

Absolutely stunning! The colors are a dream, she doesn’t need much attention which is great when you have a bunch of needy plants.
