Introducing the splendid Dieffenbachia x memoria-Corsii, a standout member of the Dieffenbachia family. This hybrid Dumbcane variety boasts an array of green hues on its leaves, accentuated by creamy white or pale yellow central veins, offering a mesmerizing visual contrast.

How to Grow

Dieffenbachia x memoria-Corsii favors bright, indirect light but can adapt to lower light levels. It thrives in well-draining potting mix and appreciates pots that ensure proper drainage. While it's primarily grown as an indoor plant, in warmer climates (USDA zones 10-12), it can be cultivated outdoors in sheltered spots.

Care Tips

Water the plant when the top layer of soil starts to feel dry. Avoid letting the plant sit in water, as this can lead to root rot. This Dumbcane variety enjoys humidity, so consider misting the leaves or placing it on a humidity tray, especially if you're growing it indoors in drier climates.


With its striking patterned foliage, Dieffenbachia x memoria-Corsii is a natural choice as a statement plant in living rooms, offices, or hallways. Its lush appearance can enhance tropical-themed gardens or interiors.

Planting Tips

If repotting, select a container that's a size larger than its current one, allowing room for growth. Enhance potting soil with perlite or sand to improve drainage. For outdoor plantings in suitable climates, ensure the plant is positioned in a location that receives filtered sunlight, avoiding direct afternoon rays.


Clean the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to remove dust, ensuring the plant remains vibrant and facilitating better photosynthesis. Trim any yellow or damaged leaves to keep the plant looking its best and to stimulate new growth.

Pests and Diseases

Regularly inspect for pests such as spider mites, aphids, or mealybugs. These can be addressed with insecticidal soaps or natural predators like ladybugs. Prioritize good air circulation and avoid over-watering to deter potential fungal issues.

Note: Like other Dieffenbachia varieties, this plant contains toxins that can irritate the mouth and throat when ingested. It's recommended to position it out of reach of children and pets and to handle with care during maintenance.
