How fast can a Dieffenbachia plant grow?


Answer by  PhoneDood (98)

There is no easy way to accomplish this without being either a trained or skill botanist. There are so many different varieties of this plant type there is no Generic-Way.

The Dieffenbachia plant will grow quite fast when placed in ideal conditions: warm temperatures, moist soil, filtered sunlight, and plenty of plant fertilizer. In such conditions Dieffenbachia or "dumb cane" can grow from 3 to 6 feet tall, with broad leaves.

That completely depends on how the plant is cared for. And how healthy it is a good way to figure it out would be to talk to your local greenhouse they will have some great information for you.

The dumb cane plant is a slow grower and can grow to be quite tall. Nighttime temperatures above 60 degrees and above will encourage faster growth. Summer months are considered its growing season. Don't forget this is a poisonous houseplant.

The growth rate of a Dieffenbachia plant depends on the growing conditions. A plant that has low light will barely grow. A plant that has indirect sunlight and proper watering will grow quickly.

Younger dieffs will grow much faster than older dieffs, and they will grow quite quickly under the right conditions. Dieffs like bright (but not direct) sunlight, warm temperatures that don't fluctuate too much, well-drained soil that's allowed to dry to the touch between waterings, and a light fertilizer every few weeks (from spring till early fall).

I think it depends on the plant. You need to either go to the plant store and ask, or get a book about it.
