DescriptionDieffenbachia Marobais an erect, broadleaf evergreen, perennial in the Maroba(arum) family that is native to Central and South America. The common name dumbcane comes from its ill effects on the vocal cords if ingested. The large variegated leaves come in a variety of patterns with beautiful cream and yellow markings some say resemble a leopard’s spots. Plant it in a loose, fertile, high organic soil and provide indirect light, and high humidity. Water the plant thoroughly, then allow the top 1 inch surface of the soil to dry completely before watering again to prevent root rot. Propagate by division or stem cutting. Dieffenbachia Maroba is typically grown in a container as a houseplant and can add interest and brighten up the dark corners of a room. Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems: Scale, whiteflies, fungus gnats, and aphids are pests. Wear gloves when pruning or repotting as the plant’s sap may cause contact dermatitis.
