Dear Adam,

Yes, use the same method as in Anthurium. You may have to cut the spathe, but the spathe does open a cup-shaped area when the female and male flowers are 'ready'. Good luck.
Here in WPB, Florida the flowers are either pollinated by local bugs or they produce LOTS of fruit without pollination.

PS. My comp is down, I'm doing this from a friends lap-top. Will be back in a few days.

My Lasia spinosa is sending up three inflorescenses right now, and I would like to try to get some seed. I have successfully pollinated many Anthuriums species before, and wonder if it is at all similar to that. From the other inflorescenses I have seen on my plant in the past, I can't recall ever seeing the spathe opening wide enough for easy access to the spadix. I seem to recall on some other aroid species the need to cut a portion of the spathe to easily pollinate the plant. Any help would be appreciated.
