Other InflorescencesThursday, January 07, 2010
This is perhaps the most beautiful spathe from an inflorescence...
It's from my fairly new Calla Lily.
Its spathe was like this for many days, then due to the heat it withered...
The other inflorescence is a plump one from Aglaonema, which has been showing itself quite frequently!
All these plants belongs to the genus flowering plant family, Araceae. As you can see here, its flower made up of an inflorescence that consists of a spadix and enclosed with a spathe, a leaf-like hood.
