Dieffenbachia is a perennial herbaceous plant with straight stem, simple and alternate leaves containing white spots and flecks, making it attractive as indoor foliage. Species in this genus are popular as houseplants on account of their tolerance of shade. The common name, “dumb canes” refers to the poisoning effect of raphides, which can cause temporary inability to speak; because of this it is often referred to as the mother-in-law’s tongue. Dieffenbachia was named by Heinrich Wilhelm Schott, director of the Botanical Gardens in Vienna to honor his head gardener Joseph Dieffenbach (1796–1863). With a minimum temperature of 5 °C (41 °F), dieffenbachia will have to be grown indoors in temperate areas. They need light, but filtered sunlight through a window is regularly sufficient. They also need rather moist soil, which will have to be continuously fertilized with a proprietary houseplant fertilizer. Leaves will periodically roll up and fall off to make way for new leaves. Yellowing of the leaves is usually a sign of problematic conditions, such as a nutrient deficiency in the soil. Dieffenbachia respond well to hot temperatures and dry climates.
