Re: [Aroid-l] Is this an aroid?

Title: Re: [Aroid-l] Is this an aroid?
Well I may be the odd one out, but I don't believe that it is T. leontopetaloides - it definitely is a Tacca, but I have the leontopetaloides species growing and flowering on my deck right now, and neither the leaf nor the flower cluster are right on. hmmmmm


Dear Marek,
this plant is Tacca leontopetaloides.
I found a tuber of this plant 2 years ago in Gambia.

Betreff: [Aroid-l] Is this an aroid?

Hello all!
Today I got these photos to identify, but I think the plant isn't a member of Araceae. What can you say about this?

Subject: Possibly unidentified aroid

Good day.  We found this unusual plant growing in a pot at a nursery in south Florida and the nursery owner, considering it a weed, gave it to us.  From its growth habit, we first considered it an aroid; however, since the blooms are opening, we're not sure at all.  For size reference, the plant is pictured growing in a 1-gallon pot and there is approximately a 2-week span between the first pictures of the buds and then the buds opening.  Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance and I definitely appreciate whatever help you can give us.
Best regards,
Monica MacLeod
