We have Dieffenbachia seguine plants growing as a hedge in the corner of our yard; their leaves are broad and green in colour with variegated white patterns. They are beautiful. These plants are also popular houseplants.
Dieffenbachia seguine plants require partial shade, moderate watering, and very little care. They bloom cream coloured flowers that are sterile; these plants are propagated from stem cuttings. Dieffenbachia seguine plants will grow to heights ranging from 3 to 10 feet; and because each plant has a cane-like stem, the Dieffenbachia seguine is also called Dumbcane (or Dumb Cane). It is important to note that all parts of the Dieffenbachia seguine plant are poisonous if ingested; and handling the plant may cause skin irritation or allergic reaction.
