Re: Unidentified aroids
Can't suggest anything sensible for the Amorpho. or the Anthurium (though
the latter looks a BIT like A. bellum from Bahia, Brazil) but the 'Arisaema'
is Gonatopus boivinii from east Africa (Tanzania, Kenya, etc.), a member of
the tribe Zamioculcadeae and related to Zamioculcas zamiifolia. When it
flowers have a careful look at the female flowers, they are currounded by a
conspicuous ring of tepals (flowers of Arisaema are naked.
