I agree with you David, I also answered another letter from our friend
Michael in Australia earlier, I do not believe that it is D. polyphyllum.
It is a GOOD match with the photos we have seen of D. prancei.
Indeed you are right, your plant is not D. gigas. It rather looks like D.
prancei which is an easy to grow and propagate (tubercules) species. The
that the inflorescence is produced at or very close to soil level and the
that covers the base of the spathe is important.
What do you think Julius ?
With best regards,
