The flowers, which are rarely seen on houseplants, are a 8-12” long, creamy-white, Jack-in-the-pulpit type.
The fruit is up to 10 in / 25 cm long, and it looks like a green ear of maize covered with hexagonal scales. Fruit is only edible when ripe.
The large, green perforate leaves have a unique ‘Swiss-cheese’ look.
All parts of this plant, including the unripe fruit, are toxic to humans and pets.
