Q.Why Is My Dumb Cane Not Producing New Leaves All Of A Sudden?

Zone San Ignacio, Belize | pudu added on December 2, 2020 | Answered

I have several indoor dumbcanes through filtered and indoor lights.ive had some for over a year, and one of them has stopped producing new leaves. There’s also a baby one which I don’t know why it doesn’t grow in the longest. Do I need to repot with richer soil? It has plant food . Third one is great, has huge leaves, but the last two leaves are smaller. How can I keep them big an healthy? They are in good fertilized soil from the botanical garden. Fourth one is tall. Finally growing a new leaf after ages! Don’t know what triggered it, was gonna ask last week if I should chop it and replant. I love dumb csnes cuz they are so resilient and they bring fresh air! Beautiful huge leaves ! Pls help me keep my ones strong and healthy 🙂

They can be slow growing, by nature. If it doesn't get fertilized every two months or more, then it will likely grow much slower. I would say that feeding them will help to speed them up just a little. This article will help you to care for the plant:
