Susan,
It's a Pycnospatha! Sorry I can't tell which species, although
probably P. arietina.

Hello Susan and Jake,

It is one of the two species of Pycnospatha! Nice photo, a bit 'pale' as
you perhaps had it in low light indoors?? The color photo in TGOA, # 111
C, shows a MUCH darker colored inflorescence, yours is sort of a pale pink!
Beautiful bloom! See the illus. on Pg. 136 of TGOA, a perfect match. It
is a rare, and in MY stupid opinion very desirable aroid, congrats!

Julius

Hi Julius!
I guess I should now confess I had this tuber in the basement... in a
box.... is that what you mean by low light??
Jake is about 6 wks post RT and still kicking up his heels

Thanks to everyone who helped ID this plant... I really appreciate it!

What a great society we have!!!
