Welcome! That is a beautiful plant. Is it a Dieffenbachia? My mom used to have huge ones like that, and I still have a plant of it that she grew, but mine has been cut back many times so it's small now. Yours is a beauty! It obviously loves the place you have it by the window.

Your plant is different from mine. I don't know the species of either one. They're all very good for houseplants.

That one looks just as nice. How do you care for your dieffs? What's your secret? Drooling

Each pot i put a small ceramic "Angel " facing the middle on the plant and every Friday i put one cup of water in the pot which includes half on the "Angel.Then once a month i spin the pot rotating the leaves in font of the window, Mainly, i barely crack the window blinds because the sun will burn it due to constant exposure.

Hi & welcome!

Your plant is incredible! Enjoyed seeing it very much.

Your pics would make a wonderful addition to the database here, if you feel like adding them. There are more specific entries, if a more specific name is known, but if not known, this entry can collect pics of any/all Diefs.

Yes, i would love to enter the Dieffenbachia in the data base, I'm completely new to the plant world, im really a Hot Rod Car guy, but i found inner Peace & Confidence in the plant world & love it, the only other plant i have is one that i got from Lowes for free that they were throwing away because it looked completely dead .I dont know the name of it but i think the "Angeles is looking over this one too.

That's a variety of cordyline, commonly called the Hawaiian Ti Plant. Possibly 'Red Sister' which is a common one the big box stores often carry. The brighter light, the more pinks & reds you will see come out in the leaves. Care is similar to your deiffenbachia.

Agree, a Cordyline fruticosa cultivar:
Ti Plant (Cordyline fruticosa)

I'm so glad you discovered plants & shared these beauties with us. Apparently they love you very much. Keep up the great growing!

Here is a update on my dieffenbachia since Nov 2016, in the previous pictures it was almost taller than the support stilts , now she's taller the stilts. Amazing
