Commonly known as: Dumb Cane
All parts of this plant contain raphides; crystalline, needle-like structures which are ejected when cell walls are damaged. It's a defense mechanism against animals, and it can cause stinging and burning to the mouth. Hence the name, dumb cane. It's one of the best varieties for purifying indoor air and is easy to care for.
They prefer bright rooms away from direct sun and can handle medium to low light.
They are a bit tricky with their watering need. Keep the soil a bit moist perhaps by misting, but don't over-water the plant.
This plant needs little care
