I received this plant from someone, with no directions of how to care for it, what it is and what it wants!
Please could someone identify it for me so I can make it a bit happier!
Its a Dieffenbachia---dumb cane. Be careful of the sap it can cause irritation to the skin.
Actually, possibly not, cos if you google it, the name 'Devil's ivy' seems to refer to a great range of plants, but most of them have shorter leaves. I know when I went to university (some time in the stone-age) everyone had one of your plants, and they called them devil's ivy, but maybe that's not the real name.
Definitely a Dieffenbachia, this site has some tips
Thanks for your help!
I think it's common name is Leopard Lilly.
There are lots of different types of Devil's Ivy and they are a fab air purifier
Care instructions are :
Have to say I would love it more if it had a different name !
