Hooghly Today : Dieffenbachia ???:

Found this plant growing wild beside a roadside ditch.
Species : Dieffenbachia sp.?
H & H : seems to be an ornamental once cared by someone, about 3 ft high
Date : 26/1/13
Place : Hooghly

I hope Dieffenbachia seguine (syn: D. amoena)

Thank you very much Sir.

since dieffenbachia iis not native, would this be a pl480 weed? or escapee from a garden??

Do not know what is pl480, heard of wheat viariety, as in – http://www.himalmag.com/component/content/article/507-pl-480-and-the-infidel-weed.html.
The place where i found this plant was by the side of a residential house. It was on the margin of a vacant land lying beside a semi-urban road. I think the owner of that house or someone living nearby planted this plant once and left unattended for years.

Is it Dieffenbachia amoena?

Dieffenbachia leaves I think have more than 10 pairs of lateral veins.

Can this be Dieffenbachia Tropic Breeze : http://www.onlineplantguide.com/Plant-Details/3044/

¿ Dieffenbachia ?  
Dear friends, please help me with ID of this large variegated leaf plant; perhaps Dieffenbachia; please validate.

Thanks … I have a strong feeling – it must be Dieffenbachia seguine. Hoping someone validates it.

Number of cultivars of each species is mind-boggling !!
