I didn't know this. I expect you did!!
Some of you may have seen my photograph of George, the plant we inherited from our daughter.
To be honest I have never bothered to find out what plant it is, This morning, however, I casually asked my husband if he knew . He said it was a “Dumb Crane”, official name, Dieffenbachia.
I thought the name “Dumb Crane” an odd one and asked for details. He said it was a poisonous plant and that one symptom was loss of speech, hence the name!
I know lots of plants are toxic but I looked up George’s credentials and they can make grim reading, if true.
There are other links with more lurid details.
Well I didn’t know this. Did you? I expect you did!!
