Dumb Cane, Diffenbachia Camille - 45cm tall in 12cm pot
Native to the tropics of Central and South America, Diffenbachia Camille has eye-catching variegated leaves. New leaves will appear curling up from the central stem before they unfurl.
Best located in medium - bright indirect light, can handle lower levels than most houseplants.
Check weekly, and if the top two inches of soil feel dry, it’s time for a drink. Be more sparing in winter.
Adores humid environments, feel free to mist often, group with other houseplants or sit on a pebble tray half-filled with water.
Be careful; this plant is mildly toxic to people and pets.
Our Camille is approximately 45cm tall and comes in a ø12cm nursery pot and a little care guide card. Feel free to email if there are any issues!
