Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachia Summer Style) is a most popular air-purifying, indoor house plant. It has striking foliage with a wonderful warm coloring, pale central stems, a pale, creamy-green center, and an attractive, dark green border. Mature plants may produce showy greenish-white or cream-colored blossoms.
Light: It thrives best in the bright filtered light. Keep the plant away from direct sunlight, because direct sun burns the leaves and too much bright light causes the vibrant leaf color to fade.
Soil: It grows well in rich organic, well-drained soil. To mix your own soil add 1 part moist humus or peat, 1 part garden soil and 1 part Perlite or coarse sand.
Water: Water your plant regularly during the growing season and always keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. You can allow the topsoil to become slightly dry between each watering. During the winter months, reduce watering.
