Dieffenbachia Exotica

Dieffenbachia I like the article

Care Dieffenbachia
This plant in the winter assumes a greenwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 1 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. The Dieffenbachia develops like a perennial herb. Feed Dieffenbachia
In the spring letís use a fertilizer every 15-20 days, melting it in the water which we use to irrigate; we can choose a fertilizer for flowering plants or green plants, rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour a balanced development of the new vegetation. Otherwise we can, if we want to, use a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil, every 3-4 months. Temperatures DieffenbachiaPosizione mezza ombra
The Dieffenbachia is grown at home or in a warmed green house; during the Spring it can be moved outside, but only if the mimimum temperatures are clearly mild. For a balanced development of the the Dieffenbachia , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light. Irrigation DieffenbachiaTenere asciutto
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer. Adversity Dieffenbachia
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden. Substrate Dieffenbachia
These apartment plants favour very well drained soils.
