Dieffenbachia Seguine ‘Tropic Snow’ Story
It is said that Dieffenbach brought Dieffenbachia seguine to Austria from Brazil around 1830.
There are 25 to 50 Dieffenbachia species originating from tropical America.
Dieffenbachia seguine is grown for its distinctively marked, paddle-shaped leaves which can be up to 40 cm long.
The sap of dieffenbachias contains calcium oxalate, and is poisonous. Consequently, great care must be taken when handling dieffenbachia plants, especially over getting sap into the mouth and eyes.
One response the sap provokes is swelling of the throat, resulting in speechlessness; hence the common name ‘dumb cane’.
In Amazonia, indigenous people use the sap to poison their arrows and it used to be used as a punishment for slaves, causing a very painful, swollen mouth and excessive saliva. In spite of the dieffenbachias toxicity, they are widely sold as pot plants.
