I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

How To Care For Dumb Cane

They like a really good watering then to be left alone to dry out for a bit. This is one houseplant which probably wont mind a routine watering regime. Of course always adjust according to the season and to the needs of your own Dumb Cane, for example expect in very warm months to water more often and in Winter less regularly.

Put this plant in partly shades spot. Don’t put this plant in direct sunlight as this can cause sunburn.

This plant likes a stable humidity environment. So it is recommendable to use a pebble tray to sustain a good humid condition throughout the year. If the surrounding saturation is too low or the heat too high, its leaf-tips may start to brown over and curl, especially in direct sunlight.

This plant likes peaty, well-drained soil.

You can use houseplant feed fortnightly in spring and summer and once a month during autumn and winter.

Not common to get pests but watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. This plant is quite common to be plagues by ” lethal yellow”, a fungal disease that causes yellowing leaves, dropping fruit and eventual death. While trees can be given antibiotics, this is not always successful and most palms end up succumbing to disease.

About Dumb Cane

If warm temperatures are provided with good light, feed and regular watering then you can expect moderate to fast growth. If you fail to give any of those things on a regular basis then growth will slow or even stop completely.

The Dumb Cane does flower indoors every once in a while but they can never match the impressive and splendour of the foliage so don’t worry if yours isn’t producing flowers.

Please note: this plant comes in a plastic nursery pot. Browse our entire range of plant pots to add that extra charm and character to your home.
