Medium Dieffenbachia 'Tropic Snow'
This houseplant is by far one of the most common indoor selections and rightly so. There are over 30 species and it’s one of the easiest to take care of and maintain. Additionally, it hosts a multitude of tropical colors that will brighten up any room. The Dieffenbachia reaches a little over a foot tall and a little less than a foot-wide give or take a few inches and thrives in humid temperatures. Its long, narrow leaves tend to grow upright with some that spill off the sides like a waterfall.
A Pop of Color is All You Need
The Dieffenbachia, or Tropic Snow has a swirl of contrasting colors in its palette. The primary leaves and stem are a rich, forest green, with splashes of lime and cream hues in the center that look like blots of ink on paper. The ink-like markings on the leaves differ with every houseplant, making each one uniquely beautiful.
Our NYC and NJ customers also love the Tropic Snow because of how big the leaves can get. They tend to cascade up and out like a fountain and are pretty wide and long, giving the plant more of a rainforest feel.
It’s Numbingly Beautiful
The beautiful Tropic Snow originates from lush forests in North and South America and the West Indies. It’s nicknamed ‘Dumb Cane’ because of a mild numbing effect it has on the mouth if ingested. (Please do not try this.)
