GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Native to Central and South America and a relative of our skunk cabbage, Symplocarpus foetidus, Dieffenbachia is a broad-leaved foliage plant with thick succulent stems.
  • 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.
  • This reaction can disable speech, hence its common name.
  • Exposure to the eyes is particularly painful.
  • Handle the plant with care when trimming or making cuttings for propagation.
  • Small children and pets should be kept away from dieffenbachia plants.
