Besides, why is my dieffenbachia leaves turning brown?

Leaves are curled with brown edges — Curled, browning leaves could be caused by excessive fertilizer application.
Also, what's wrong with my dumb cane plant? The most common problem with growing dumbcane dieffenbachia is too much moisture. Some dieffenbachia plants require low filtered light. Most cultivars do fine with a low light environment; however, growth is slower or stops, but the plant will remain healthy and attractive.
Beside this, why is my dumb cane leaves turning yellow?
On the other hand, leaves that turn yellow and are smaller and closer together on the plant's stems indicate poor nutrition, particularly low nitrogen. When dumb cane wilts and turns yellow from the bottom up, it needs to be watered more regularly.
Do you cut brown leaves off plants?
Yes, but leave just a little bit of brown on each leaf to avoid stressing the plant. If it's brown and dry, then cut the whole leaf, but not too far from the main branch so that it will grow a new leaf. If it still green but just the tip is brown, then use a sharp pair of scissors to just trim the edges.
