Diphenbaquia: A variety with nuances

Diphenbaquia: A variety with nuances

The Dieffenbachia Maculata, from the Araceae family, comes from Tropical America and is the one for those who do not have much experience in the care and maintenance of plants.

They appreciate the bright environments, but avoiding direct sun. Heather needs more light. Its ideal room temperature is between 18 and 25 oC. Its irrigation must be abundant and, in summer, it must be done almost daily, although it is important that, between irrigation and irrigation, the soil dries because an excess of water can cause the stems and leaves to rot. It should be out of reach of children, because their sap contains calcium oxalate and, if it bites, the throat becomes inflamed.
