They certainly are both stunning and different I admit but taxonomically they
are surely both A. veitchii. I suspect that if we had all the variation
that is exhibited in the wild, rather than just these two forms we would see
that they are less distinct from one another.

I was wondering about these two
very different types of A. veitchii that I have been growing for a
One form is the more typical one I
had seen around for years, with wide folds and pleats in the 3 ' long thick
blade. The other form has much tighter pleats, a much, much longer
and thinner in width and textured blade.
Also this different than
normal form has a spandex that turns pink. The more typical form's
spadix turns greenish.
Would these two forms both be
considered the same species?
If anyone has an opinion I would
really be interested in it. This has had me sort of baffled as to what
would be the correct label to put on it.
