Brown Wilt On Dieffenbachia Amoena - Knowledgebase Question

Oswego, NY
Question by reading
December 19, 1999
I bought a dieffenbachia amoena a few months ago and noticed brown wilt on the tips of the leaves. The brown has spread up the leaves and is on new leaves. I give it indirect light and try to keep it on the dry side as the instructions say but don't know what to do now. Should I cut off the infected leaf, leaf part...if so, where should I cut? Do I need to change the watering ? I have only used Miracle Grow once and that was after the brown was evident so I don't think that chemials have burnt the plant. Also, could you recommend easy to care plants for the indoors?

particularly like is "Houseplants for Dummies" by Larry Hodgson ISBN 0-7645-5102-7 because it is straightforward and yet addresses plants for many types of growing conditions and care regimes. particularly like is "Houseplants for Dummies" by Larry Hodgson ISBN 0-7645-5102-7 because it is straightforward and yet addresses plants for many types of growing conditions and care regimes.
