The Dieffenbachia features large leaves with decorative, green colorful markings. The plant grows upward as it ages, making it a great choice to brighten up a corner. Well-known for being a low-maintenance houseplant, Dieffenbachias are the perfect choice for new or busy plant owners.

Native to parts of Central and South America, Dieffenbachias are tolerant of a wide range of conditions, growing near stream banks and on roadsides. These qualities make it an incredibly adaptable indoor plant. For the showiest leaves, give the plant a boost in humidity over the dry winter months. Keep your Dieffenbachia away from curious children and pets, as this plant is toxic if ingested.
