Can tolerate almost any light conditions except direct sunlight as this will burn the leaves. Ideally needs moderate, filtered sunlight. Turn the plant over time for even growth.
There's no real watering art form here but typically every 10-14 days. Only water the plant when the soil is dry. Reduce watering in the winter or you may drown the plant.
Thrives best in 65-75° and less than 60° should be avoided. Too high of temperatures can make the plant sick. Low temperatures may slow growth.
Loves humidity, water the leaves in the morning!
Can grow up to 3-6' in height. Use a well-drained soil and fertilize every two weeks in the warm season and none in the winter.
Poisonous and toxic leaves that can cause swelling of the throat and skin irritation if ingested.
This plant is typically called Dumb Cane because the poisonous leaves contain a substance that can temporarily numb the vocal cords if consumed
