Dumb Cane 'Compacta' Care Guide
Bright indirect light is ideal but it can tolerate light shade. Lower light levels reduce the rate of growth and can dull its leaves. Direct sunlight can scorch them
Wait until the top of the soil is dry before watering it sparingly. Be careful to not drench it and keep away from droughts
Ideal temperature between 18-24 °C but it can cope with as low as 10 °C for short periods of time.
You can feed it with a weak fertiliser during the growing season
Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust
If it is growing too tall, or looking a bit unkempt, trim stems with sharp shears
