I can try to help identufying this Typhonium but I would
need to see some pix of the naughty bits inside the base of the spathe (male and
female patr and staminodes).
The plant surprised me by popping open this afternoon..... and alerting
me by its stink! It smells like very fresh, very strong horse manure, or
maybe monkey dung..... not attractive at all.
By way of scale reference, the plant is in a 120mm squat pot. It is
growing in the natural depauperate laterite soil I found it in, and
not in any sort of potting mix..... will try that this year now that I have
flowered the species.
I apologise for the quality of the pics, and will try to do better
tomorrow if the flower is still open.
