  • Can get large and be used as an indoor tree look alike 
  • Air purifier

Our Dieffenbachia comes in a 14cm Nursery Pot.

The striking riot of foliage patterning of the Dieffenbachia has enshrined it as a firm house plant favourite. Native to a broad South American region, from Mexico to southern Argentina, Dieff's will be happy in most indoor environments.

These are some of the easiest house plants that you can keep. Give them a little attention, and they will continually amaze with their striking foliage display. The ultimate easy-care plants also make for ideal beginner plants as they can handle bouts of drought.

They will overtime grow relatively large and can be used as an alternative to an indoor tree, especially for the ability to adapt well to a variety of lighting conditions, be it low or bright and filtered. 

Pair your Dieffenbachia with an unadorned planter to allow this beauties foliage to shine. However, no matter what you choose to pair your Dieffenbachia with it will look gorgeous wherever you choose to keep it, be it in your office or home, whilst working hard at purifying your air and leaving you with healthier fresher air to breath.

Please Note: Dieff's are also called 'Dumb Canes'. This is due to the ability of its toxic sap to render a person temporarily speechless. Best to wash hands after touching and keep away from pets and young children.
