Why Do my Dieffenbachia HousePlants Die?
I have had alot of luck with houseplants, but every time I get a Diffenbachia Plant I manage to kill it. In July 2015 I bought a little plant in a 4inch pot, it was beautiful, it slowly began to loose a leaf from the bottom an now has one leaf starting to sprout, I would really love to save this plant. I know it gets good light I am very careful with watering, I use the vitamin you recomended Superthrive on all my houseplants. Can you please help Judy? Thanks, Susan
Here are a couple of reasons why your dieffenbachia plant may be losing leaves.
Light: Dieffenbachia plants require bright in direct light. Give the plant a 1/4 turn every week so all parts of the plant, especially the bottom, get adequate light.
