It looks like a photo of a painting not a live plant.
Attached are photos
of two large meconostigmas. Philodendron
eichleri is said to be a hybrid.
The inflorescence is not quite as
red as your photo. The unidentified
philodendron from Brazil would
be my first pick. It has the darkest red
inflorescence of any
meconostigmas I have seen and blooms form in recently
leaves. The spathe opening and curve to the spadix will vary
throughout the two days they are open.
