I bought this plant today, along with several others. I think it might be an Aglaonema, but I'm not entirely sure. Can anyone ID this for me?

Its hard to tell Aglaonema apart from Dieffenbachia

We had some lengthy discussion on that , on another ID thread a couple weeks ago.

Wish I could see the stem but sallyg is correct. Hates the cold though.

Here's a picture of the stems. Sorry if it's kind of bad. Anyway, I decided to read up a bit on how to tell Aglaonema apart from Dieffenbachia, and since the new leaves on my plant are emerging from the petioles of previous leaves, I'm now starting to get the impression that this is actually a Dieffenbachia, not an Aglaonema. A second opinion on this would be helpful, of course.

That is not the growth pattern of Dumb Cane but Aglaonema. Wait for others to give feed back. Dieffenbachia as the name Dumb Cane suggests looks like a cane. The dumb part is if you chew on any part dumb is the side effect.

Although plant seems to be young, I feel this is also Dieffenbachia, the same reason I gave in another thread, although veins are not very clear.

We are being shown the images of two different plants if not species. The second is not as mature as the first, Singh jee.

My vote is on Dieffenbachia. The leaf tip dieing back like that is something Dieffs are prone to more than Agloes.

Dear KAMasud, I was referring to first plant. A well developed mature plant would usually have a taller stem bearing leaves, here they are emerging almost from near base.

My goodness, I'd totally forgotten about this post. Anyway, for those who were wondering, I'm going with the notion that it's a Dieffenbachia. Thanks, guys, and sorry for taking months to reply. The plant is still doing okay, for those curious.
