  Re: [Aroid-l] Dieffenbachia hoffmannii photo?

I cannot give a source for the name Dieffenbachia hoffmannii but I have in
the 60s and 70s grown this Dieffenbachia, in fact it was a favourite of
mine. The name is no longer valid, if it ever was, but D. 'Exotica' or
'arvida' may be a mutation of it, whatever it is. Both are said by Graf to
be from Costa Rica.

The accompanying illustration may perhaps answer questions about markings on
stem and petiole.
