How do I water Dieffenbachia Panther Plants?
Dieffenbachias do best when they are kept on a consistent watering schedule. Water about every 10 days or when the top inch of soil dries out, no more, no less. These plants do not like their soil to dry out, nor do they like their feet to stay wet. Follow this schedule for the best results and a happy Dumb Cane!
What is the best soil for Dieffenbachia Panther?
The best soil for Dieffenbachias 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 to ensure your plant does not sit in water.
What is the light requirement for Dieffenbachia Panther?
Dieffenbachias are tolerant of a lot of forms of light, but they prefer bright, indirect light. Direct light can scorch the leaves, so be sure that your plant is not placed in an area where the sun will directly hit it. Indirect, or filtered, light is optimal.
How do I fertilize Dieffenbachia Panther Plants?
Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment but we recommend Jack's Classic Indoor Liquid plant food or Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor Granular.
These indoor plants prefer to be kept at room temperature around 70 degrees. They can be placed outside during warmer months, but be sure to bring them in when the nightly temperature drops below 5 degrees. <span data-mce-fragment="1">Dieffenbachia plant care is relatively straightforward as they will thrive in most indoor conditions. Remember to keep your Panther Dieffenbachias away from cold drafts and don't allow them to sit in water as this can cause the root system to rot.
