In fact, part of the appeal of this plant is its uniqueness and distinctive beauty.

Dieffenbachia is a superb natural air purifier. It transforms carbon dioxide into oxygen and eliminates impurities from the air.

Patterned and bright-colored leaves have been proven to improve our ability to focus. A great reason to home the Dieffenbachia in your studying room!

Dieffenbachia is easy to grow if you strive for the best possible care.

The genus Dieffenbachia was named after Herr Joseph Dieffenbach during the 1830s.
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.
Dieffenbachias are extremely toxic to both humans and pets if ingested, so you should not be grown in preschools, playgrounds, child care settings, kids/pets play areas, or animal shelters, and access should be restricted in homes with toddlers or kids (including homes or places where kids/pets may visit).

* You should wear gloves whenever cutting or pruning your Dieffenbachia, as its sap might cause skin irritations.

Dieffenbachia is easy to care for, it requires evenly damp soil, and is filtered bright to medium light.
