Dieffenbachia may be grown as a small tree with a canelike stem or as a shrubby plant with multiple stems. It thrives in low to medium light. Grow it at room temperature and keep the soil evenly moist. It is sometimes called dumb cane, a reference to the effects of its toxic sap, which can cause tongue numbness and swelling if chewed by children or pets.
