GENERAL INFORMATION

  • A popular house plant because of its ease of culture, it is available in a variety of leaf patterns.
  • Dieffenbachia’s common name, Dumbcane, comes from the fact that all plant parts contain raphides; crystalline, needle-like structures which are ejected when cell walls are damaged.
  • Raphides are believed to be a defense mechanism against browsing by animals since ingestion of the plant will cause stinging and burning to the mouth and throat with symptoms persisting for up to two weeks.
  • Small children and pets should be kept away from dieffenbachia plants.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Plant Dieffenbachia in houseplant soil or DIY two parts peat moss and 1 part perlite.
