Dieffenbachia, A species of Dumb canes
Botanical name: Dieffenbachia seguine
Genus: Dumb canes
The focal point of a dieffenbachia is the beautiful look and patterns of the foliage, which are often variegated. This plant has showy white blooms, but only flowers in perfect conditions. Use caution, because the dieffenbachia is poisonous; if the sap is ingested it can cause muteness for up to two weeks by numbing the throat and vocal cords.

Dieffenbachia is a common ornamental perennial grown as a house plant. The lovely variegated leaves are its most prized feature, giving a boost of color and interest to what otherwise may be an uninteresting area of the house. Dieffenbachia is perfect for those who don't have access to an outside garden and want an easy-to-care-for plant to bring indoors. Houseplants that require similar growing conditions, such as the spider plant, will be great companions.
