Dieffenbachia prefer moderate indirect light to thrive. They can survive in lower light, however growth will be slowed. They should not be placed in direct sun, as their leaves will burn.
Dieffenbachia Compacta should be grown in moist yet well draining soil, and should be allowed to dry in between waterings. Yellowing leaves and root rot are signs of overwatering, while wilting and dry, crispy leaves are signs of underwatering.
Dieffenbachia are easy to care for. They thrive in warmth and high humidity, but will also tolerate normal household humidity levels. If the soft, cane like stems grow too tall, they can always be cut back and rooted to create new plants if desired. This plant should be fertilized monthly through the spring and summer, with a diluted general houseplant fertilizer.
