Dieffenbachia Sterling is a stunning variety of Dieffenbachia with dark green leaves and a contrasting cream vein running down the center of each leaf. Native to the tropics of Central and South America, it has huge sometimes variegated leaves. 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. Due to its toxic juices, this plant is not recommended for homes with small children or pets that chew on your plants!
