Fantastic houseplants for beginners and experts alike, the array of leaf variegations between each variety of the Dieffenbachia family makes them very collectible. 'Camilla' is petite in stature but bold in impact. The combination of pale cream and deep jade is particularly striking, and brings light and contrast to any houseplant collection.
Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out slightly between each watering. Allow the top 2-3cm of soil to dry: check with a finger. Make sure the roots are never sitting in excess water for a prolonged period, and you may find you need to water less frequently during colder months, aiming to keep the substrate just barely moist.
Requires plenty of indirect light, but will tolerate light shade. Close to an East or West-facing window is ideal. Hot, direct sun through windows can scorch the delicate leaves so be cautious in Summertime.
Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
