Dieffenbachia Amy, or Dumb Cane Amy, is a member of the Araceae family. This fast-growing tree is originally from the tropical Central and South America areas and the Caribbean. It has huge oval green leaves with creamy white speckled variegation.
Dieffenbachia Amy can grow up to 6 feet in height and 3 feet in width in ideal conditions. The large, showy, and stunning foliage makes this plant a beautiful decorative element for any living space.
As a beautiful ornamental houseplant, Amy Dumb Cane is also very useful in purifying and detoxifying indoor air environments.
Amy has medium light requirements. It thrives in bright indirect, diffused sunlight or partial shade. Avoid harsh direct sunlight.
Amy needs light watering. Only water when the top 2'' of the soil is dry. Water thoroughly and let excess water drains well to avoid root rot. Start with watering once per week and monitor the soil to decide on your schedule. This plant needs less watering in winter.
This plant prefers soils that can retain some moisture but still drain well. You can add some peat moss and perlite to regular potting mix soil to increase aeration and drainage.
This plant should be kept in temperatures between 60°F-80°F and a high humidity level (at least 50% all year round). Use a humidifier and mist your plant when the weather is dry, especially during winter.
This plant should be fertilized once per month during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
This plant contains calcium oxalate and can be toxic to animals so keep it out of reach of curious children and pets.

*** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon

bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for
replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you.
Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
