Spathiphyllum wallisii  Rege

did you spend any time with the people you went to travel with?

ha ha .. people were my wife, and my friend and his wife.
This exploring was during my morning walk in the resort !!

Otherwise spent all time with them during sightseeing — stealing some bits of time here and there, then

yes, its always that way. some of my co-travellers get upset that i am not co-travelling or doing all the adda sessions. some get irritated that i miss meal times but some encourage and even come back from their runs or jogging and tell me of anything they could not recognize.

the last two trips i only carried my two iphones. one for writing. another with a better camera for pictures. some turned out really good

requesting identification of this Spathiphyllum spp at a private society garden at Pune

spathiphyllum clevelandii

Hort Ufl

I think some cultivar of Spathiphyllum wallisii Regel as per images and details herein and as per

This Spathiphyllum sp is commonly planted as ornamental in Pantnagar. Please suggest correct ID.

Spathiphyllum– species in India & eFIoraofindia with details & some keys

I have very doubt about how scientific it would be if we do not have KEY as well as we do not know the names of various cultivars. Yet, as I searched for long acuminate leaves + short spadix I came across one wild species – The page gave me clue of two ornametal 1) S. floribundum and 2) S. patinii , both can be found at – Shorter spadix, acuminate leaves with distant nerves take me to Spathiphyllum floribundum (Linden & André) N. E. Br.
I won’t be surprised if I am wrong.

I think some cultivar of Spathiphyllum wallisii Regel as per images and details herein.
