This is a Pseudodracontium species. Since you didn't open
the spathe and showed us the naughty bits, there's no way to be sure about the
species. I don't know what you are trying to tell us in wiriting that the spadix
never elongated past the flowers. The flowers are ON the spadix, as in
every aroid. The appendix in Pseudodracontium (the top part of the spadix) is
wrinkled or papillate, and that is visible in the picture.
Why it didn't open beyond this point I don't
I received this plant as an unknown species ostensibly from
Thailand. Here are some pictures of it's inflorescence. Any help
with an id?
The flower looks most like an A. krausei to me, but I have
one of those that flowered and the foliage doesn't look anything like this
plant. (Unless my krausei is misidentified...)
possibility I thought was perhaps A. atrorubens?
In most cases when
comparing my plant to pictures, two points of departure were that my spathe
never opened any further than show in the pictures, and the spadix never
elongated past the flowers -- I think both of those might be aberrations due
to the immaturity of the plant or some suboptimal environmental
So here are the pics -- any ideas?
