Answer:Dieffenbachias are notorious for outgrowing their spaces. Often they lean and require support before they reach the ceiling. The cure for both overgrowth and leaning is pruning. Pruning not only solves these problems, but it actually benefits the plant. New growth will emerge from a point on the stem just below where you make the pruning cut. So if you want new growth to start low, then you should prune back to about a foot above the soil.
