Common names: dieffenbachia, dumb cane
Description: Dieffenbachias are popular foliage plants because they withstand an indoor environment better than most plants. They are about 2 1/2 -feet tall but can grow to 4 or 5 feet. Leaves can be up to 18 inches long and 1 foot wide.
Special care: Provide bright, indirect light. Make sure the plant receives more light in winter. Water plants thoroughly. Allow the soil to dry slightly before watering again. Do not allow plants to stand in water. Exercise caution with children or pets because plant sap can cause irritation of the mouth tissues.
