This plant was labeled Aglonema Pink Sapphire...I haven't been able confirm that ID to add it to the data base.. Is it a Dieffenbachia? Is Aglonema a more correct name? It's such a gorgeous plant. Thanks for any help.

Aglaonemas are in the same family as Dieffenbachia but they are a different genus. That is a gorgeous plant!

Aglonema Pink Sapphire looks correct, a very well marked one perhaps.

Here's a list of varieties with photos ..

Etta Rose is similar but has green edging and I'm not sure it has pink stems.

Good spot Rick, I just copied and pasted the name as it was put originally! The plant is in the plant files already and I think that is correct.
