Leopard Lily, or Dumb Cane as it’s also known by, produces beautiful leaves that are green on the outside and a mixture of cream and green in the centre. The beauty comes at a price, though, as the plant’s sap can be dangerous to animals and humans.
Dieffenbachia or Dumb Cane plants, native to the tropics of Mexico and all the way south to Argentina, are relatively easy-care houseplants with large, broad, patterned, oblong leaves. They can be small table plants or 5ft-6ft. trees depending on the variety you select. Dieffenbachias are fast-growing houseplants that tend to get top heavy if not properly pruned. All parts of a dieffenbachia are extremely poisonous which is how they earned the nickname “dumb cane plant”and should be kept away from pets and children.
