|Dieffenbachia are lovely houseplants, I've grown a few of them over the years and the variegations in foliage is really pretty.
I don't know about rare varieties of Dieffenbachia's but the big box stores (Lowes, Home Depot, Wal-Mart) get most of their plants from large wholesale nurseries located in South Florida where they are mass produced. If you can post a photo of your plant someone might be able to identify the cultivar and give you a name. You can also check those listed in our database to see if you find a match: http://garden.org/plants/brows...

|If I ever see one of the bigger ones, when I have that much $ to spend, I'll get it! I give up on trying to keep the tiny kind alive. There are a ton of diff Dief species. For some reason, this extremely popular house plant isn't discussed much, and nobody ever seems to know what kind they have, or if the big ones are a diff species than the little ones from EA, or what species or cultivar any of them are. I don't think "they" realize the potential to sell plants to collectors of names!
