Camille Dieffenbachia (Dumb Cane)
Dieffenbachia maculata 'Camille'
One of the most popular houseplants, the Camille Dieffenbachia has ivory-yellow leaves edged in rich, dark green. This plant isn't a choice for people who have curious pets or children because the sap is toxic.
- Light: Indirect Sunlight – This plant needs at least some natural light so place it somewhere with windows nearby.
- Water: Thirsty – This plant can only go 1 to 2 weeks without water so check weekly and water when the top two inches of soil dry out.
- Tips: Like many houseplants, it would rather be too dry than too wet so if you are unsure about whether it needs water, wait a day or two and check again.
