Dieffenbachia is a genus of tropical flowering plants in the family Araceae, named after Joseph Dieffenbach.
It’s a decorative plant also known as the mother-in-law tongue, as it has a toxic sap with calcium oxalate crystals,
which if ingested can cause tongue or throat inflammation, or a more serious complication.
The large and showy dieffenbachia can be the perfect living decoration for the home or office. It improves air quality and reduces harmful dust
and pollution particles.
