After searching in vain for the name of this huge pot plant, I now resort to my world wide readers... Indeed: HELP NEEDED identifying this plant. It was given as a birthday present to Pieter in April, so we've tried for three months now to determine its name. The leaves are kind of leathery and in the center something is growing. Not a blossom I think as it started in May already.
It is not rhubarb... But WHAT is it?
Does anyone know; please help me out!
My guess is that it is some tropical variety...
Above two photos were taken on May 20.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR NAMING THIS ONE... and solving the mystery!
Thanks to Ger from Hoorn Des Overvloeds, a Dutch blogger friend, she pointed me into the right direction. With some more research I've found out that it is an Anthurium Plowmanii Fruffles
THANKS GER - YOU ROCK!!!
