☀️ Light: Dieffenbachia Camille thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a north- or east-facing window where it can receive filtered sunlight or artificial light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Dieffenbachia Camille with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization frequency in the fall and winter.
