Subject: [Aroid-l] OT: id this non-aroid plant?
Please excuse this non-aroid topic. I was asked if I knew what the plant in
the attached image is. I don't, and the leaves make me think of one family,
the flowers another, and the bracts a couple of others. But I know many
people on this list have very wide botanical interests, and I'd appreciate
I'm told the picture was taken in the rain forest near Arenal, in Costa
Rica, and that the flowers themselves were about 5 cm (2 in) long. I asked
for other images, especially of the flowers, but at the moment this is all
there is. But you guys are so good I feel sure it'll be enough.
(if anyone is wondering, I did get permission to post the picture ...)
