- Dieffenbachia is a genus of tropical flowering plants in the family Araceae.

- Some species are widely cultivated as ornamental plants, especially as houseplants, and have become naturalized on a few tropical islands.
- Tolerable to any kind of well-drained potting medium, though humus-enriched soil is beneficial.
- Fertilize the dieffenbachia with a water-soluble houseplant fertilizer that has a nutrient ratio of 20-20-20, diluted to half strength every two weeks from March through September.
- The plant grows very slowly during the winter months and cannot use the fertilizer efficiently, creating weak growth or brown leaves.
- Bright light or filtered sunlight for best foliage coloration and vigorous growth.
- Avoid direct sun that will scorch its leaves.
- Water moderately and regularly, keeping it evenly moist but not water-logged.
- Allow the surface to dry out slightly between waterings.
