*Dieffenbachias are mildly toxic to both humans and pets, as all parts of the plant contain calcium oxalate crystals. We deem this plant safe for use with the above animals, but the more risk-averse may wish to avoid it. For more information please visit the ASPCA list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants.
