Dumb Cane grows best as a houseplant in bright, indirect sunlight. Plant it in fertile, well-drained potting soil with a high peat content. As a tropical plant, it thrives best with high humidity. One way to provide this is to place the pot on a tray of pebbles, which is kept moist. In the dry winter months, spraying the leaves can help.
Watering: Keep the top inch of soil moist, but do not overwater it. Your Dumb Cane plant can tolerate missed watering, but extended periods of watering neglect can make its leaves shrivel.
Light: Put it in a spot with bright, indirect sunlight or partial shade. It also can tolerate full shade. Avoid placing your plant under the intense, direct sun because its leaves will burn.
Temperature: Put it in a humid environment. It’s also best if you can mist it often, place it near a humidifier, or use a pebble tray. It prefers temperatures between 62-80°F.
