This wonderfully interesting houseplant is really stunning with its dark, forest green and white flecked variegation - we really love it!
This Dieffenbachia is also known as the Dumb Cane plant- for a fascinating reason! This houseplant produces a poison in its leaves that can temporarily numb the vocal cords if it’s eaten - hence the name Dumb Cane! Don’t feel intimidated - just don’t eat it! Certainly a good bit of trivia for a dinner party though!
It’s an absolutely gorgeously stylish houseplant - and it brings to your home the style of a similar plant such as variegated Monstera while being a little easier to care for - it doesn’t require such constant humidity. It really is a show-stopper with its wonderful variegation - there is almost nothing like it even amongst other large leaved variegated houseplants. Not surprising it’s so sought after for magazine shoots and other photographic events!
Cane plant will look amazing in any room - it has the additional advantage of being really good at cleaning the air, so it will benefit your mental and physical health to have it around the house! It would make a great addition to any houseplant collection and indeed an amazing part of a forest bathing experience!
We’ll include a free, handwritten card with your delivery if you buy this plant as an indoor plant gift - just leave your gift message at checkout and we’ll arrange the lovely surprise! No paperwork left in either!
