My dieffenbachia is very healthy looking but it,s latest leaf will not open fully. It has been weeks now since it grew and opened half way. When I first got it, it got several new leaves quite quickly but seems to have stopped growing.

RE: dieffenbachia

For me, sometimes dieffenbachia leaves get "stuck" and don't completely unfurl. Sometimes the top of a leaf will end up ripping because it was stuck. I think it's pretty normal. As long as the plant seems healthy, I wouldn't worry about slowing growth. You never know what conditions it was raised/shipped in, and it might be delayed stress from when you brought it home.
