  • Perfect beginner plant
  • Tolerant of various lighting conditions
  • Instant jungle vibes

Our Dieffenbachia comes in a 15cm 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 little attention as they love drying out, and they will continually amaze with their striking foliage display.  

Dieffenbachia Exotica houseplants are also fabulous beginner plants that can tolerate a large range of lighting conditions apart from direct sunlight, making them ideal for a the medium to low light area in your home.

Over time they can grow relatively large and form a gorgeous tree-like appearance if their pot is gradually upsized.

Pair with any planter of choice as these can make any planter shine and use as a tabletop accent piece. A definite must-have houseplant.

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.
