Many of love plants, and think of them as being quite inanimate and just as more of a decoration but the truth of the matter is that there are countless different species of plants and some of them are actually very dangerous.
Sadly, the way we as a society learn about these things is more often than not as a result of pain, rather than a result of schooling or education.
“I almost lost my daughter, she put part of the leaf of the plant in the mouth! Her tongue becomes huge and she started to choke! Here is this plant and you keep in mind that there are other similar potted plants with almost the same characteristics, which are also poisonous”
“Dieffenbachia” (Dumb Cane) is a truly beautiful plant as one can see just by looking at it and it can be found in many homes. However, this plant as stated in the aforementioned is incredibly dangerous.
Contact with dieffenbachia can cause a host of unpleasant symptoms, including numbness, and if swallowed oral irritation, excessive drooling, and localized swelling. We absolutely have to be careful with this plant, particularly with our animal friends and children.
Dieffenbachia is so powerful that it can cause death in a child who swallows it within 1 minute, while adults can die within 15 minutes. Even touching it and then unwittingly rubbing our eyes can lead to blindness.
It's best to remove this plant from your home. Please spread this information to make people aware.
