Dumb Cane 'Compacta' Care Guide

Light

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

Water

Wait until the top of the soil is dry before watering it sparingly. Be careful to not drench it and keep away from droughts

Temperature

Ideal temperature between 18-24 °C but it can cope with as low as 10 °C for short periods of time.

Feeding

You can feed it with a weak fertiliser during the growing season

Grooming

Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust

Care

If it is growing too tall, or looking a bit unkempt, trim stems with sharp shears
