  • Planting
  • Place the AquaForWeeks pot with the Dieffenbachia as soon as possible in a nice light spot in your home. Morning or evening sun is ok, but it's best to avoid the brightest midday sun. Water the plant immediately and fill the entire reservoir.
    The best spot for your Dieffenbachia
    The most perfect spot for your Dieffenbachia sequine is:
    1. One with lots of light but that is sheltered from the hottest midday sunlight - early mornings or evenings are not a problem (in fact it will appreciate it!). Usually somewhere around 3 metres from a window is ideal.
    2. Somewhere warm, (18-23 degrees centigrade) wonderful if you happen to have under floor heating. Immediately next to or above a radiator will not be appreciated (it will dry the potting compost out too quickly, giving more chance of leaf drop).
    3. Somewhere with high humidity (60-70%). Spraying the plant regularly will help - 2 or 3 times a day even!

  • Care
  • Water the Dieffenbachia regularly but your With AquaForWeeks pots they need filling every 3-6 weeks (depending on the plant and ambient temps). During the growing period, feed regularly with a liquid plant food every fortnight, using half the recommended dosage as instructed on the label.
    This plant tends to grow towards the light so a simple quarter turn every month helps to keep it straight.
    If your home is very dry (humidity < 50%) it's a good idea to spray with rainwater once or twice a day. If the hardness of your tap water is too high, it might leave lime residue on the leaves. In which case it is advisable to use rainwater or boiled (and cooled) water.
    Extra tips
    Dieffenbachia sequine will appreciate being stood outdoors on a warm but rainy day. It will really perk up after a shower.
    As in its natural habitat, it will regularly lose its lower leaves - do not worry if they turn yellow and drop off, as long as it continues to make new ones.

    With these tips, you can keep your dieffenbachia healthy and looking fresh for a long time.

  • Specifics
  • Dieffenbachia sequine is a robust and easy to grow houseplant.

    Dieffenbachia is originally from the tropical rain forests South and Central America such as Brazil, Ecuador and Costa Rica. It is used as a decorative outdoor plant in (sub-) tropical regions of the world and can reach a height of 2 metres in those areas.

    In temperate climes, the Dieffenbachia sequine makes a wonderful and popular houseplant. It is possible that this plant could flower in the home, but this is more to be expected in tropical regions.
    Dieffenbachia belongs to the Araceae family and as all members of this family the Dieffenbachia contains a toxic milky sap. There is however, under normal circumstances nothing to worry about. If you do come into contact with it, it is advisable to rinse your skin with water.
