    Hello, I love plants and I have many that I have saved. The only problem when you save plants is trying to figure out what kind of plant it is. I have a very interesting plant that I have never seen before. It only has one big leaf at a time, and the trunk of it is like a bulb. Can someone please help me name this plant?

    I had one like this before when I used to live somewhere else. Never knew its name but it was a very interesting plant.
