I would like to request help of you to confirm this species is Dieffenbachia picta.?
Thank you

I would not have thought it is D. picta. For one thing it has white
petioles, whereas I believe that those of D. picta are green speckled with
white. Also the leaf blade shape is wrong. Can't suggest what sp. this is,
though, although it looks familiar.

My D. 'Sao Antonio' are smaller than this, but they do have similar leaf
markings with white petioles.

I agree w ith John Criswick, that P. picta = D. maculata has geen stem & petioles.
