Dieffenbachia Tropic Marianne shows off creamy-white leaves strongly variegated with rich green. Everything about the dumb cane, or dieffenbachia, is dramatic. Native to the tropics of Central and South America, it has huge variegated leaves. Even the way it grows is showy, new leaves curling up from the central stem before they unfurl. The dieffenbachia’s common name, dumb cane, comes from the fact that the liquid that drips from its leaves can cause a temporary loss of speech if ingested. For that reason, this plant is not recommended for homes with small children. This is a grown up plant for grown up home.
