It is native to the United States, Mexico and Puerto Rico, but was introduced to Europe in the late 19th century.Fully grown plants can spread up to 20 feet (6 m) tall. They are also called climbing plants as they grow up on other plants. They have thick, fleshy roots that extend underground. The plant can be found growing in full sun or partial shade depending on exposure and growing conditions.The plant grows very slowly, taking over 2 years to reach maturity. This makes it a great houseplant for beginners since it doesn’t require much attention once it reaches maturity and can be left out for years on end.If you’ve ever wondered why the Dumb Cane Dieffenbachia plant is so popular, it’s because it can be grown in a wide variety of indoor environments. It can survive more than a dozen hours of direct sunlight without watering. It shouldn’t be placed in direct sun, but indirect light may be sufficient.

In the early 20th century, it was thought to be an invasive plant, but it has now been successfully grown as a houseplant. The Dumb Cane Dieffenbachia grows up to 3 feet tall and can be kept indoors in its usual habitat.
