Dieffenbachia Compacta prefers bright, indirect light, allowing it to thrive in various corners of your home or workspace. Its lush, variegated leaves, adorned with deep green and creamy white patterns, create a visually stunning spectacle that complements any decor. 

When it comes to watering - keep it simple: Allow the soil to dry out before giving it a gentle but deep drink. This hardy plant is forgiving of occasional forgetfulness, making it a resilient choice for busy lifestyles or the less than attentive plant parent.

With its graceful appearance and easy-care nature, the Dieffenbachia Compacta adds a warm and welcoming feeling within an interior, and very easily create a lush oasis feeling. Embrace the joy of nurturing a plant that rewards you with enduring vitality and elegance, all with minimal effort.

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.

Follow these instructions to keep your Dieffenbachia healthy and happy:

  • Water: Water thoroughly, allowing the soil to dry out well between each watering to avoid overwatering.
