Re: Typhonium violifolium
Don - I hesitate to suggest this, but your description sounds awfully like
some of the kaempferias that make a couple of leaves of that shape that hug
the ground. They are on the market as K. galanga, but may not all be that. I
push potting medium under mine as they get close to the edge of the pot to
make them ride up over it, otherwise they get very frustrated.
