    I live in Nth Qld Gulf country, found this lily last year and have successfully grown it in a pot. It is deciduous, flowers and seeds in the wet season. Would like to know the name of this lily (if it is that) and how common it is. Cheers, Peter.

    G'day Peter.
    This plant is an aroid, you might have better luck if you move the post to that area. Mick from Tully will more than likely know.
    Have you been washed out up there yet, mate?

    Thanks Ed,

    Move the post to this area......is that within this site? Could not find any helpful sites here in oz and know that this site has a lot of exposure. Yep, water logged but the norn for this time of the year I guess, looks like the wet is heading your way as well. cheers peter

    Peter , gidday mate , are you up near Cooktown ? It looks to be a Typhonium species , a lady I know who is in Cooktown now collected a species similar to this .
    I also saw some collected from around Gove . I never got a firm id from the experts but it could be T. angustilobum F. Muell .

    Nice find! I love seeing native Australian aroids. Most of what you see on these forums are either South American or Asian so its a nice change.
    Michael...do you happen to have any images of an native Australian Monsteroids? The only one I think of that Ive seen you post is R. pachyphylla which is relatively common in cult. even here in the USA. but what about some of the others?
