    Hi ! This is my first post on here, just wanted to ask if anyone knows what plant this is? I picked it up about a month or so ago from a nearby nursery because I wanted a nice plant to keep in my bedroom. I've been watering it once about every 3-4 days with a glass of water. Would love to know what species it is exactly so I can know more about how to care for it, especially since some of the leaves are faded instead of having a pattern on them. (I'm not sure if that's supposed to happen. If you look at the leaf at the top it's really apparent, but it just recently sprouted and is slowly getting some colour on it so I really have no idea) Would appreciate any help, thanks! :)

    Could be Devil Ivy Epipremnum aureum. Need someone else to confirm.

    This is Dieffenbachia.
    For this plant, the east or west window is suitable without direct sunlight.

    Loves moist air. Watering is normal, when the soil begins to dry out. In summer, more, in winter less. Not a complex plant for the house. :)

    I'm not a star. :D I am a northern gardener who, because of the cold climate, grows too many indoor plants. :D
