Dear All,

I dug around and managed to find the original I.D. request w/ the 4 photo
attachments, and on further review I am now certain that this plant/plants
is/are P. xanadu (maybe 'showboat', said to be a cultivar of P. xanadu), a
'self-header'. The final photo (005f.jpg) was decisive, as it pretty
clearly illustrates the rhizome or stem, roots, and the intravaginal
squamules (thorn-like structures) around the leaf bases and leaf scars are
clearly visible, all point to the plant being a self-header..
What confused me was that the plants are being grown on a totem and probably
in low-light conditions which have produced a non-typical plant/plants.
