I took those pictures at the Wilson Botanical Garden in Costa 
Rica.  I didn't measure the leaves but I estimate maybe they were 1 
to 1-1/2 feet long. I didn't see any inflorescence. If this is part 
of the collection, the label must've been lost, because I didn't see 
any. The pattern of the holes really caught my attention because I 
have never seen anything similar whether live or in pictures. I 
wanted to know what species it is to add it to my wish list. :-D
