My Lasia spinosa is sending up three inflorescenses right now, and I
would like to try to get some seed. I have successfully pollinated many
Anthuriums species before, and wonder if it is at all similar to that.
From the other inflorescenses I have seen on my plant in the past, I
can't recall ever seeing the spathe opening wide enough for easy access
to the spadix. I seem to recall on some other aroid species the need to
cut a portion of the spathe to easily pollinate the plant. Any help
would be appreciated.
