This herbaceous perennial is one of the most common and easiest indoor houseplants to grow, and with it’s ability to survive entirely on artificial light, it can easily be used to brighten up any space, even commercial spaces. Avoid direct sunlight which can cause leaves to burn or look bleached and faded. During the growing season, it prefers dappled shade and indirect light and regular moisture, and during the winter months, it appreciates bright light and a cut back on water. The “Dumb Cane” was named after the numbing effect it can have on the mouth if ingested, so it is highly recommended to keep out of reach from children and pets. A clean air study performed by NASA shows that the “Dumb Cane” can remove volatile organic pollutants such as formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene, purifying the air we breathe.
