Good evening,
It looks like there are two plants in this picture. The bottom plant is a Philadendron. I thought the tall plant was in the Defenbachia family, but the fruit has me wondering. Can you tell me more about the flowers/fruit, such as how often they appear and what they look like up close and how long they last?
Thank you for using Ask an Expert and I look forward to your response.
