35cm Dieffenbachia'Compacta' | Leopard Lilly | 9cm Pot | By Plant Theory

The Dieffenbachia is a great houseplant for beginners wanting to add something easy to care for but with big impact to their indoor collection. Originally from Mexico and the West Indies, these beautiful plants have large paddle-shaped leaves that unfurl from a central stem. This Compacta variety has variegated leaves in a dark green and speckled cream, giving it the nickname of leopard plant. Dieffenbachias also carry another common name of Dumb Cane for the fact that their sap if ingested can cause temporary loss of speech... don't worry though, large quantities would need to be ingested for this effect to occur and the plant is otherwise harmless. A great plant with large dramatic leaves.

About your plant

The plant pictured to the right is fresh from its nursery and indicates what you are going to receive. Your plant will arrive in a standard pot (any planters displayed are for illustrative purposes only, so will not be included with your order).

Packaging

Plant Theory has sustainability at its heart. This means that every plant will be delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. The intuitive box design is plastic free and will keep your plant safe on their journey to your home.

All Plants Supplied In Nursery Pot

Please note, all of our house plants arrive in a nursery pot as standard. You can find a more permanent home for your plant in our wide range of indoor plant pots.

How your order will arrive
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.

The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).
