Dieffenbachia plant dying

Zone Duhok | Lily added on March 22, 2016 | Answered

My Dieffenbachia leaves keep turning yellow then fall. The plant grows very slowly. It loses leaves more than growing new ones! I need help to save my dieffenbachia. Thanks in advance.

Yellowing leaves generally indicate a watering issue; too much or too little.
The soil should be moist but never soggy.
Check the soil and water only when the top inch or so have dried.
A bright filtered light location is best and a regular fertilizer schedule will help keep a healthy growing Dieffenbachia.
