Maybe this is the year the Remusatias flower all over the world? One of
mine has flowered, too (the tuber and the emerging inflorescence of that
one can be seen in http://ng.netgate.net/~kk/Araceae/Remusatia/vivipara1.html).

One notable difference wrt Don's observation (which, as I recall, was that
the inflorescence was quite epehemric, having unfolded and wilted withing
a day or two): the inflorescence has lasted for nearly two weeks. Its
smell resembled that of a fresh potato cut open - somewhat unpleasant.
