Regular price $28.00

Water & Light Plant Shop's Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachia Tropic Snow) plant, a plant named by a German, mispronounced by everyone, and given the meanest nickname in the plant kingdom. Free shipping on all orders.

Dieffenbachia (dumbcane) is a tropical plant native to Southern Mexico, Central and South America. Known for its pillowy leaves and bright yellow and green contrasting patterns, these plants grow thick stalks and can quickly become a household favorite with age.

Our 14-18" tall dieffenbachia has been grown by a South Florida company that has been in service of the ornamental houseplant industry since 1961.  Known for their customer service and excellent selection, the company strives to exceed expectations and over-deliver on their promises. We imbue these same values into our hard work and pass this commitment and positivity on to you!

  • Recommend transplanting within 2-3 years into a vessel 1-2 inches larger using regular potting mix.
  • Clean leaves with damp paper towel every 1-2 weeks to aid photosynthesis and stimulate growth. Check leaves and stalks for pests while cleaning. For more information on the importance of cleaning leaves, read our guide here.

For an overview on how we ship plants to you, see our guide hereAll items are shipped from Florida on Mondays or Tuesdays to allow for maximum continuous transit time while avoiding time spent sitting in warehouses, trucks, or other distribution points over the weekend. Depending on your location and the weather conditions across the country, we may be forced to hold on shipping until conditions improve as we have had items freeze while sitting in Chicago for four days and get delayed due to heavy holiday volume (Mother's Day, Christmas, etc.).  We will make every attempt to ship your item promptly on the very next Monday or Tuesday given that there are no anomalies in shipping conditions.

Items received in a damaged condition will be refunded immediately as we investigate the cause of the issue with the shipper.  Returns will not be accepted, please dispose of any unusable items after they have been refunded.
