Controlling Dieffenbachia Diseases

Dieffenbachia is among the top 10 most popular plants produced by commercial foliage growers in Florida.  But in greenhouse conditions it may be plagued by bacterial and fungal diseases, often spread from stock plants to cuttings and divisions during propagation.

A new EDIS article by UF plant pathologist David Norman provides guidelines to identify and treat diseases that may be encountered during the commercial production of Dieffenbachia.   The publication can be viewed at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pp286 .
