Here are pics. I backed inflorescence with white paper for comparison, it's definitely a yellowish color.

I have a couple of decent size plants of Chocolate, I'll check for flowers tomorrow. Pretty sure they flowered before but didn't notice the color.

Hi guys,
Sorry for the delayed response - I finally got a picture of the Aglaonema 'Chocolate' flower. The yellow doesn't come through very well on the camera with the lighting, but they are more of a creamy yellow than white.

That is worth noting. I just did a Google image search for Aglaonema Chocolate, and none of the pictures had flowers. Which means that I don't know if yellow is typical of this cultivar or not. It might be worth investigating the nature of the pigment in the leaves that creates the chocolate color: in plants, proanthocyanidin creates the brown, beige, or tan colors; whereas yellow is either carotenoid or a flavonoid. Are these flowers a clear yellow, or is it more of a brownish yellow? The latter would suggest that the leaf pigment is also in the flowers; the former would suggest a different explanation.
