Dumbcane - Dieffenbachia compacta sp


This is practically a sensitive one, the whole plant had a heavy attack where the snails and slugs seemed to love it. Eventually it had succumb to rot and the plant died. I now realized that not Dieffenbachia does not behave the same - this one however is not hardy.

It has more than 3 tones with another added variation at the edges - streaks of white and another layer like splashes in the appearance like a transparent plastic like grey/white features. Truly regret why I had not paid more attention to cultivate it as many as possible.

I also realized that this one seemed to be more rare and not easily available in the plant market. Identifying the breed has it's own challenges. I had spotted this one sold in online nursery without any indication of it's ID or any botanic information.

One thing though - it has the compacta parentage where the foliage has clustered formation and they don't grow too big.
