A great air purifier, Dieffenbachia Sterling has large shiny green leaves, with prominent white veining. This plant is easy to care for and can handle neglect better than most. 


Type: Tropical 
Height: 3ft - 5ft
Spread: 1ft - 3ft 
Light: Bright Indirect
Water: Moderate
Zone: 11 - 12
Pet Safe: Toxic to pets if ingested. 


General Maintenance: Check the roots every spring, and if the plants roots have become quite dense, repot into a larger pot. Propagates best by new growth cuttings or by breaking off young stems growing from the sides of the plant. 

Temperature: Ideal indoor temperatures for this plant are between 18ºC - 23ºC, but it is known to handle temperatures between 4º - 35º. Regular room humidity is fine for this plant. 

Light: Prefers a bright space with indirect light, but can tolerate full shade. Direct sun will damage the foliage. 

Watering: Keep the top inch of the soil moist at all times (water frequently, but in small amounts). This plant can tolerate some periods of neglect, but the leaves will begin to wilt and shrivel. 

Soil: This plant will grow fairly well in most soil mixes other than sand-heavy mixes or orchid mixes. For best results use a one-to-one mix of potting soil and perlite. 

Fertilizer: If you choose to, you may use a full strength mixture of a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Be wary of overfertilizing as that can cause the plants leaves to start to droop.
