How to Care for Dieffenbachia Camille
Before bringing your new Dieffenbachia Camille plant home, make sure to read the recommended care instructions for a successful transition after shipping.
How do I water Dieffenbachia Camille Plants?
The Dieffenbachia Camille likes humid environments that do not have too much of a draft, but they will tolerate their soil drying out between watering (even prefer it!). Water thoroughly until water flows out into the drip tray, and remove all excess water from the tray when it is done draining. Then wait until at least the top inch of soil has dried out before watering again. A humidity tray (a tray with stones below the pot filled with water) will help this plant thrive if your room is on the drier or cooler side, since the water will evaporate into the foliage.
What is the best soil for Dieffenbachia Camille?
The best soil for Dieffenbachia Camille is a well balanced mix of organic matter that dries some between watering but takes a long time to compact. Typically, any reputable potting mix will work well and includes things like peat moss or perlite. Adding a little bit of cactus mix to the soil can help improve drainage.
What is the light requirement for Dieffenbachia Camille?
Dieffenbachia Camille will do just as well in low-light or fluorescent light as they will in bright indirect light. Direct light can scorch the leaves, so make sure there is some filtration (like a sheer curtain) if it lives on a windowsill with lots of sunlight. Dieffenbachias prefer dappled shade or indirect light during the growing season as the bright sun can burn the light-colored foliage.
How do I fertilize Dieffenbachia Camille Plants?
Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. On the other hand, Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment.
Dieffenbachia plant care is relatively straightforward as they will thrive in most indoor conditions. Remember to keep your Camille Dieffenbachias away from cold drafts and don't allow them to sit in water as this can cause the root system to rot. Dieffenbachia plants prefer above-average warmth. If the air temperature drops below 60 degrees or the plant is exposed to cold drafts, it may begin to lose its lower leaves and look like a palm tree.
