Be Aware of this Deadly Plant

The following was reblogged from Mr. Remi Portado's Post. Please read:

"If you have a plant like the one in the picture below, get rid of it.

This plant is very common at our houses, gardens, parks and offices (popular as indoor & outdoor plant). The plant (Dumb Cane or Dieffenbachia) is now proven to be dangerous, so, please take care!

I know that the leaf of this plant causes itching if its sap (milk) touches your skin. But there are more dangerous facts! Read the details below.

May be useful for you. You better believe it.

Please read below. 

One of my friends almost lost her daughter who put a piece of the leaf of this plant in her mouth and her tongue swelled to the point of suffocation. This is one plant but there are others with the same characteristics of coloring. Those are also poisonous and we should get rid of them. Please watch out for our children. As we all leave our children at home in the hands of a nanny, we should give them a safe environment where they can play .

Name: Dumb Cane or Dieffenbachia 

"This plant that we have in our homes and offices is extremely dangerous!
This plant is common in Rwanda. It is a deadly poison, most specially for the children. It can kill a kid in less than a minute and an adult in 15 minutes. It should be uprooted from gardens and taken out of offices. If touched, one should never touch his/her eyes; it can cause partial or permanent blindness. Please alert your friends."

Ito ay isang paalala lamang at hindi pananakot. Para makasiguro, itapon na natin ang mga ganitong halaman sa ating tahanan. Mas mabuting palitan ng mga halamang-gamot.

Thank you po for sharing! This plant is common in our surroundings and I never thought it was dangerous. Like Jomi, I am also worried of our dogs because they can be very naughty. Better safe than sorry. Thanks again for this post. :)
