#103 They called me Dieffenbachia seguine, also known as Dieffenbachia poeppigii, Dieffenbachia seguine subvar. wallisii, Dieffenbachia wallisii, Dieffenbachia picta subvar. jenmanii, Dieffenbachia jenmanii, Dieffenbachia verschaffeltii, and Dieffenbachia chelsonii. I pay homage to the male botanists Eduard Friedrich Poeppig, Jenman (I couldn’t find his records), Verschaffelt (I couldn’t find his records), Chelson (I couldn’t find his records), and M. Wallis, or Gustav Wallis. They first catalogued me in 1832.
