Can you help me identify these plants…yikes!!

My mother just passed away and I’m trying to transplant some of the plants from her funeral, but I have never had a green thumb and am totally lost when it comes to knowing what plant is what. I have 5 pots…

Hi Christina,


This is an Arrowhead Plant.


This is a Dieffenbachia.


The speckled plant is a Gold Dust Dracaena and the other plant is a heart leaf philodendron.

You can read my plant care tips for these plants in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. When you re-pot them, use small containers with drip holes in the bottom. The pot should only be an inch or two larger than the root ball.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
