    I have one that looks like this never new the name of it. It was my Brothers and when he passed my nephew and niece took the plant and made shoots for all siblings. I thought I had killed it but cut off a chunk like the video and have it in water,(having the bottom of the stem down) where it has grown roots and now has 6 leaves.

    According to sources when Dieffenbachia growing top heavy and it would leaning often toward the light sources. I don’t have any experience growing this plant, but all my other indoor plants are going outside until the cold weather comes. Sun light, fresh air and rain water do wonder for them. Check out this helpful included video . Best wishes Radagast! Laura https://youtu.be/OJaBzvkpbHQ

    Thanks, Laura! After a bit of digging (ha ha), I believe it is either seguine or amoena. Those curved trunks are a bit of a puzzler, though … according to the “official” descriptions, Dieffenbachia is “supposed” to have a straight trunk. Well, one cannot have everything, can one? Thanks again, Laura!

    Maybe something in the Dieffenbachcia genus. Check out the cultivars & species and see if you have a match. This link is for the species Dieffenbachia seguine. Best wishes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dieffenbachia_seguine
