Dieffenbachia Camilla, also known as Dumb Cane, is a popular houseplant with attractive variegated leaves. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Dieffenbachia Camilla prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. In the winter months, water the plant sparingly.

  3. Humidity: Dieffenbachia Camilla prefers high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by placing a humidifier near the plant, placing a tray of water near the plant, or misting the leaves with water.

  4. Temperature: Dieffenbachia Camilla prefers warm temperatures between 60-75°F (16-24°C). Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

  5. Soil: Dieffenbachia Camilla prefers well-draining soil. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and sand works well.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed the plant every 4-6 weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer).

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its size and shape. Remove any yellow or brown leaves to promote healthy growth.

  8. Repotting: Repot the plant every 1-2 years, or when it outgrows its pot or the soil is depleted. Use a pot with drainage holes and well-draining soil.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Dieffenbachia Camilla can be susceptible to spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly. Overwatering can cause root rot.

With the right care, Dieffenbachia Camilla can be a beautiful and easy-to-care-for houseplant.
