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.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
