Answer: What you describe is called turgidity. It is a natural process that the plant goes through when it has a lot of water pressure which is pushes up through the tissues. The water escapes through little openings in the tissues of the leaves. It happens in all kinds of plants and is usually nothing to worry about. Your new plant should be watered throughly and then you should allow the top of the potting soil dry out before watering again. This will provide just the right amount of water to the roots of your plant. Enjoy your dieffenbachia!
