Q.Help Save My Dieffenbachia

Zone 3064 | Jazminou added on July 27, 2020 | Answered

I just picked up a very very depressed looking dieffenbachia plant on clearance from Bunnings hoping that I might be able to save him! He is incredibly floppy and droopy, trunk looks good but the leaves are NOT happy. There is a new leaf unfurling which doesn’t look too unhealthy. The soil feels very moist so I will be avoiding watering for a while. What should I do to give him the best shot possible?

The best way forward will be to use a fungicide and provide proper care. These articles will help:
