Description:  ‘Sterling’ exhibits dark green leaves which are further accented by a bright white midrib.  The leaf length of ‘Sterling’ averages 2.3 times the width and may reach a length of 36 cm and a width of 15.5 cm when mature.  Growth tests revealed that plants averaged at least 6 basal shoots, eliminating the need for multiple plants per pot to achieve a full look.  ‘Sterling’ dieffenbachia is intended for commercial producers growing finished plants in 1.6L or 3.9 L containers.
