Tropic Snow is one of the showiest Dieffenbachias. The splashes of white variegation are large and random on a deep-green background. This tropical plant is found in the forests of Brazil and the Caribbean and typically grows as an understory plant in dappled sunlight. Tropic Snow Dieffenbachia is a fast-growing upright plant that needs little maintenance to look its best.

Best Locations For Growing Tropic Snow Dieffenbachia

Dieffenbachia makes a good specimen plant. The corner of an office, family room, or bedroom with at least medium light levels is perfect. Pets and children should be kept away from Dieffenbachia. All parts of this plant are poisonous.

Tropic Snow Dieffenbachia Sunlight Requirements

Tropic Snow prefers medium to bright indirect light levels. The variegated leaves will tolerate brighter light than other cultivars that are a darker green. Rotate the pot once every 1-2 weeks to promote straight growth. Dieffenbachia will grow toward the light source no matter how low the lighting. A grow light in the winter can be used if the light is very low in your house. 

Tropic Snow Dieffenbachia Care

Use soil-based potting soil with one part of perlite mixed in. Light, loose soil will help the roots dry in between waterings. Keep the humidity levels around Dieffenbachia medium to high with a daily mist of water, or use a portable humidifier. The lower leaves will turn brown and dry out if the humidity levels are low or if the plant is near a drafty door or window. This does not affect the overall growth of the plant, and the dry leaves are easily pruned off. 

Watering Tropic Snow Dieffenbachia

Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil have dried. Carefully water until liquid comes out of the drainage holes. Empty any excess water from the saucer or cache pot after 10-15 minutes. The number one cause of Dieffenbachia failure is overwatering or letting the plant sit in water. 

Feeding Tropic Snow Dieffenbachia

Fertilizing can be done once every 4-6 weeks throughout the year. Use diluted liquid fertilizer formulated for houseplants with a balanced ratio of NPK. Apply fertilizer in place of regular watering.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
