This Dieffenbachia (Dieffenbachia maculata) comes in a 4” pot. 


This plant grows to be large and if you are using it in a vivarium may need to be eventually moved to live as a house plant. You can also prune to keep its size in check. 


We recommend our Rainforest Substrate. Our substrate contains 14 all-natural ingredients that will provide all of the organic materials that will jump-start this plant and give it all the nutrients it needs, along with providing what is needed to the clean-up crew.


With Pets: We do not recommend placing this plant in a vivarium with an animal that eats plants. Dieffenbachias can be toxic to animals and humans.


Native To: This fern originally comes from Brazil.


Lighting:  This plant prefers temperatures 60°-80°. This plant prefers bright indirect light, protected from direct sunlight. 


Hydration: This plant likes to live in humid conditions of 40% or more. Humidity is a plus. Making sure to mist your plant when you mist your animal will provide the humidity needed. This plant does like to be consistently moist but does not like its roots to stay soggy. Provide well-draining soil.


Important note: If you will be using this plant in a vivarium setting with animals, we recommend that all of the soil the plant comes with be washed off prior to placing the new plant in your vivarium. That way you will not accidentally bring any unwanted invertebrates into your setup. 


Cold Weather: If you live where the weather will be cold and frosty upon arrival, we recommend contacting us in advance so we can add a heat pack to your shipment. If you choose not to add the heat pack and your plant arrives damaged from the weather, no refund will be given.
