Dieffenbachia Bloom

Dieffenbachia Bloom
Posted by Kim from Nova Scotia, Ca on 2005-05-12 06:58:00

My Dieffenbachia is flowering, it has 2 long white seed pod looking sprouts on it inside of a leaf. I was wondering what you do with them and if you can remove them from the plant and start a new plant with them?

Thank you

    hi,
    These curious white growths are the flowers. Just leave them on the plant, you can't make more plants from them.
    You can make more plants from cuttings though, if you want to know how, feel free to contact me
    regards,
    Hugh
