Dieffenbachia Reflector

Dhs. 95.00

The Dieffenbachia Reflector is a specific cultivar of Dieffenbachia, a popular indoor plant known for its large, lush leaves and striking variegation. It is distinguished by its broad, oblong leaves that feature a prominent central vein and striking variegation. The variegation typically consists of creamy-white or yellowish patches and streaks against a backdrop of deep green.

Growth Habit: Like other Dieffenbachia varieties, Reflector grows in an upright manner, forming a clump of stems from which the leaves emerge. It can reach a height of several feet under optimal conditions, making it an excellent choice for adding greenery to indoor spaces.

Light Requirements: Dieffenbachia Reflector prefers bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, its variegation may become less pronounced, and growth may slow down. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

Watering and Soil: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out between waterings. Dieffenbachia is sensitive to overwatering, which can lead to root rot, so it's essential to water sparingly and ensure adequate drainage.

Temperature and Humidity: Dieffenbachia Reflector thrives in temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) and moderate to high humidity levels. If the air in your home is dry, consider using a room humidifier or placing the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity.

Maintenance: Prune the plant regularly to remove any yellowing or damaged leaves and encourage bushier growth. Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth occasionally to remove dust and keep them clean. Dieffenbachia can be toxic if ingested, so it's essential to keep it out of reach of pets.
