Inflorescence means "flowering"
Glow in the dark is phosphorescence
A. titanum has not the biggest inflorescence in the World
Each apple tree has a bigger inflorescence.
A. titanum has hundred or thousands of inflorescences like most Aroids, the cluster of those inflorescences is very big. Look at a Sunflower, there are hundreds of inflorescences in the middle of the"flower" but each of it is a real botanical flower and produce a seed.
Hopefully I am right :-)

What does inflorescence mean? It reminds me of something that glows in the
dark, but that can't be right. I know the flower of the A.Titanum is the
largest inflorescence, but does that mean there is another flower that is larger in
the world, because it is not categorized as an inflorescence?

If there is a larger flower than the A. titanum, what is it?
