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 The name is no longer valid,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.
illustration may perhaps answer questions about markings on stem and petiole.

According to all the Kew
sites as well as TROPICOS there is no such species. Can you tell us the
source of the name?

Can anyone point me to a good
photo of Dieffenbachia hoffmannii? I would like to see the petioles with
the leaves, if possible. I am trying to double check an ID.
Thanks a lot for any help.
