It can be hard to tear your eyes away from the Camouflage Dieffenbachia. Long, sword-shaped foliage has a white midrib and varying shades of green variegation, creating a camouflage look. The leaves slightly bend at the center and gently arch, putting the lovely colors on full display. Camouflage Dieffenbachia is an easy-care houseplant and thrives with minimal attention.

Best Locations For Growing Camouflage Dieffenbachia

Dieffenbachia plants do best in sunny locations with increased humidity. Feature this leafy beauty on an end table or desk or display it on a plant stand when it gets bigger. Be aware that this plant is not pet friendly, so choose a spot that is not accessible to your furry friends.

Camouflage Dieffenbachia Sunlight Requirements

This plant needs medium to bright indirect light. Increased levels of sunlight help this beauty grow and push out new foliage. However, the Camouflage Dieffenbachia can just as easily live in medium light and add color and visual interest to not-so-bright areas of the home.

Camouflage Dieffenbachia Care

Prune dead or damaged growth as needed, but wear gloves and wash your shears before and after use. Dieffenbachia produces a sap that can cause skin irritation, so be careful not to come into contact with the sap. If you do touch the sap, wash the affected area right away.

Watering Camouflage Dieffenbachia

Water Camouflage Dieffenbachia when the top 2 inches of soil are dry. Completely saturate the soil when it is time to water and allow extra water to drain through the pot. Dieffenbachias are forgiving plants and will bounce back quickly if you are late with water. Camouflage Dieffenbachia can live in average humidity but performs best in high humidity.

Feeding Camouflage Dieffenbachia

Feed the Camouflage Dieffenbachia once per month when the plant is actively growing. Use a balanced, water-soluble plant food, or encourage more foliage using a nitrogen-rich fertilizer. Dieffenbachia does not need to be fertilized while dormant.
