Dieffenbachia Snow is excellent at purifying the air of harmful toxins such as: formaldehyde and benzene (which is found in detergents, plastics and pesticides), trichloroethylene (found in dry cleaning solvents), toluene (which is found in paint thinner and nail polish), ammonia and, of course, carbon dioxide.
Dieffenbachia should be grown in a warm, humid environment with plenty of light. You will know if the air is too dry if the edges or tips of the leaves start to turn brown. If this happens, you can either group it with other houseplants or set it on a water and pebble-filled tray. Make sure the pot is not in the water to prevent root rot.
These plants like regular watering but make sure you don’t keep it too wet for extended periods of time.
Dieffenbachia should be fertilized at least once or twice a year for best results. Follow the instructions on any general-purpose fertilizer.
