Diffenbachia - TROPICAL MARIANNE
The large and showy Tropical Marianne can be the perfect living decoration for the home or office. Tropical Marianne has large, waxy, green leaves which are mottled with blotches of white, cream or yellow. New leaves are almost completely cream with only a green margin while leaves become greener as they age.
Plant Care Tips
LIGHT: Diffenbachia’s prefer bright light but away from direct sunlight particularly in the middle part of the day. If the light levels are too bright the leaves will scorch, too dark and you will be left with a leggy, sickly looking plant.
WATER: The soil should be kept moist but not wet and needs to be well-draining.
GROWTH HABIT: Diffenbachia’s will take some neglect and poor treatment.
NOTE: Do not allow children or animals to chew on these plants as they can end up with a painful and swollen mouth. All parts of the plant have lots of microscopic needle-shaped calcium oxalate crystals.
SIZE: Will grow up to 150cm tall
