That is fabulous! Let me show you a different view. I noticed some have a different color tip.

It's a beauty! I would love to be able to say which it is, but that would be guessing.. look at the red ones on this Chinese site, it seems the leaves vary in size and shape. The spadix sticking out the middle has two parts, the pollen bearing part at the top which falls down to fertilise the seeds below.

I see the photos have gone from the link, but you can get several pages showing them on the top Araceae link.

Yep, I saw them they are very good, I think it would make an interesting house-plant. I definitely want that orchid!
