At least I "think" that's what this plant is.

Are these "seed pods"??? This just fell off of it, and as you can see, there is another one on the plant. Should I break it off? It also had one more that fell off about a week ago.

That is an expired bloom. This time of year the flowers open for about a day, with a six inch spadix.Then it
retreats back again into its spathe, the surrounding sheath closes back up, the older the plant the more blooms. They dry up and fall off, they are not seeds as far as I know, I have plants over twenty years old and the only new plant came out from the bark not a dropping flower. They are very fragrant in the early morning and evening.

Just look at the roots on that Philodendron Anna. I think you need to pot it up into something larger - like a cattle trough maybe. Rolling my eyes.

Cripes, it's in a 20 inch pot now!!!!!!!!!!! The roots are probably as big around as my index finger, at least.

Wish I would have seen the bloom, looks kind neat.

You can start selling admission tickets to your Wisconsin jungle. Hilarious!

In this pic it's kinda squooshed in between the ferns and the wisteria I had yet to plant but you can see how it's spread out. I bought it as a charity case at WM several years ago. It looked pathetic. I paid $5.00 for it............told it that it had a choice........live or die. It took it a year before it decided to live.

Oh, I guess you can't see it at all since the wisteria is hiding it. Here is a pic of it from last summer.
