Safety Instructions
Species in this genus are popular as houseplants because of their tolerance of shade. Its common name is "dumb cane." Dieffenbachia leaves and stems are poisonous if eaten. If ingested, it can paralyze the voice, and larger quantities can paralyze the whole body or to even be fatal. Therefore, it's important not to play with this plant! The sap from this plant is toxic and it can cause allergic reactions, painful rashes, numbness and other problems. When handling the plant, avoid getting any of the sap in your eyes or mouth. It's always best to wear gloves when working on this plant. It's also vital to keep it away from children and pets.
