Bernieh:

Love it! Plants in the Araceae family (or Arum family) are some of my favorite plants.

They really are amazing structures ... I always look forward to seeing them pop up!

Yes, I do too. I just posted a pic of my Spathiphyllum 'Sensation' the other day...however, we've had a horrible heat wave - Monday the temp was 108F/ 42.2 C. (some places were much hotter) and the flower wilted very badly (even in the shade).

Wow ... that is hot! No wonder the poor thing wilted!

Bernieh:

Yes, this heat wave which started last Saturday has been pretty horrible..it's not quite as bad now, but will last another 3 more days.

I revived my Spathiphyllum 'Sensation' by drowning it in water...although, it did take a long time (many hours) to perk back up again.
