Dieffenbachia. Toxic sap, so wash hands after handling. Toni

RE: How about this one...what is it?

Thanks again Toni!!!! You are awesome!!!!

RE: How about this one...what is it?

That one may not like the heavy, dark soil as much as the Syngonium. Keep this one much more dry. Is there a new stem of plain green leaves coming up?

RE: How about this one...what is it?

Years ago folks called it dumb cane (bad name) not politically correct. As mentioned above is toxic.
What it did as I was informed, was affect the nerves
in the tongue so the person would be unable to
speak/swallow for some time.
I use to have some but with grandchild, granny freaked
out and gave them away!
But anything with color and especially with varigation
I love.

Threre is a bunch of new growth... Green with the white.... My daughter thinks it is cool to have a poisonous plant... Lol... She tells everybody!!!!!

This is a plant that is common in funeral planters... They should have to put that on a label Somewhere.... maybe they do it on

RE: How about this one...what is it?

It's only poisonous if you eat it, and I think most people wash their hands if exposed to the sap, to be sure not to accidentally spread it to mouth or nose. A lot of house plants are poisonous.
