Eager to know about the climber having heart shaped leaves in picture no.5. Is it Dioscorea or Giloi or anything else?

regards

Hi Dr.Oudhia,
   It is Dioscorea bulbifera. The local name is Kadu Karanda.

Amorphophallus - devil's tongue

Such a beautiful plant, adorable.
But then, why the name - devil's tongue. Is it found in a haunted
place..

TFS/Regards

Hi,
 Affirmative. My mistake. It is Amorphophallus commutatus.
            With regards,
               Neil Soares.

Thanks, Dr. Wilbert.

I am totally baffled about how people can mistake such a species for Am. paeoniifolius!! It is indeed A. commutatus.

 

The name A. paeoniifolius var. campanulatus is another nonsense name (see my publications on this, Flora of China / Flora of Thailand)).

 

I will answer the other ID requests tomorrow.

 

Best,

Wilbert Hetterscheid
