Indian kale 2

I had posted this Indian kale before. This pix, I cropped it to show just the flower. At Christmas, I received an email with a power point of presentation of flowers. This flower made their last page.
I was very surprised as it was very rare, I found the original plant in the jungles near to NTU. I nutured it and grew many pots to present it especially to Indian friends. the spathe is the big petal-like part that most people would probably consider the "flower".   The spadix is the spike part sticking out of it.
It makes me wonder if that photo came from my original plants.Dragon Arum
