Thanks Julius for the explanation.
As you know, I have read both of your Aroideana articles on P.
xanadu and could not figure this inflorescence photo out since I
realized it didn't match what it should be like. I almost sent you a
note but figured you'd be along soon enough with an explanation on
Aroid l. I had suspected something to do with the TC chemicals but you
cleared up the "whys" of the multiple spathes.|
This is a very deformed bloom, only the spathe color is correct. See
what a real, natural and single spathed bloom looks like in the
description of the species in Aroideana.
This one demonstrates a stage where the meristem/main rhizome may in
fact be splitting into two plants. This wide spadix/double spathe
''syndrome'' was discussed some time ago on aroid-L, and seems to be in
common in aroids plants treated with chemicals or produced by the
tissue culture method of reproduction. On some plants a single
flattened petiole but with two leaf blades is also common. I THINK I
replied to this before, but it might be lost in cyberspace as I did not
see my reply on aroid-L, so here goes again!
