Dieffenbachia or (to use its common name) Dumb Cane has a bad reputation as a houseplant. It will kill your children, it will commit murder most foul and its even been known to burn down houses! The truth is that Dumb Canes are poisonous, however it rarely kills human or animal. All parts of the plant have lots and lots of microscopic needle-shaped calcium oxalate crystals and when some unfortunate animal (or person) chows down, they end up with a painful and swollen mouth. In some cases the swelling is so bad it causes the victim to go silent for inability to talk, this is where the common name of Dumb Cane came from. Although not a cold hearted killer, it does cause some very unpleasant side effects and a hefty amount of pain to go with it. Avoid coming into contact with the sap and if you do, wash it off before you accidentally rub your eye or somewhere equally unfortunate.
