Would anyone care to hazard a guess about the plant in the attached

It came up in a pot which originally contained a Nervilia (Orchidaceae)
purchased from a commercial grower. When the orchid had gone on to the
great compost heap of eternity and I was about to throw the pot out, I
noticed signs of life - whatever this is. As to size, the pot is about 10
cm square, and the inflorescence perhaps 2 cm long.

Other clues: for a time this pot did live in a sun room near a couple of
anthuriums (obtained from Tom Croat about 20 years ago). They do flower
and fruit and it is possible that a seed fell into this pot, although
neither of them ever flowered until much, MUCH larger than this plant
(leaves in the one meter size range), and the infloresences don't resemble
this in shape or color. (I'll withold the name of those plants for now -
both the same species - so as not to influence anyone's thoughts.)

Dear Steve,

At first glance, my impulse is that it might be a seedling of a "Lady Jane"-type Anthurium (A. andreanum X A. lilacianum spelling?).  IF Tom`s Anthuriums are NOT of this ilk, maybe the seed might have fallen into the pot back when the Orchid was at the original nursery??
Let us know!!

Anthurium, but which on of the above 1000?

I can post these photos in the ID Center.
