Have you ever see this plant?

This picture was taken in Manokwari.
For me, this is the first time I see this kind of plant. What so unique about this plant is its leaf petiole which has about ten radial ears around the petiole. Leaf size is very large, length of midrib is approximately 50 to 80 cm, length of petiole itself is about 1 meter.

I will try to search for its scientific name, but if you know it, please let me know. I will deeply appreciate it...

Hi Ben!

Excellent post! This plant is very new and strange to me, I'm seeing it for first time now. Weird shapes of leaves. Great green colours. Mood of real rain forest.

Hello Ben,
I confess, I have not seen before a plant like this. Very interesting and very nice captured by you. Thankyou very much for this interesting shot.

Hi Ben.
Very attractive subject. Great rich colour tones, excellent details, unusual (for me) plant and perfect composition and presentation of shot. Balance of dark green parts and almost white BG is controlled skillfully. Very well done and TFS.

Hello Ben,
No, I don't think that I ever saw this plant, not in Quebec for sure as it wouldn't last for a day ;) The climate between our respective country are just completely opposed :-) I really like the details; POV and framing that you chose to present us this interesting specie. They are nice contrasts in the green color with beautiful POV and composition. Well done and thanks,

Hi Ben. That looks a most unusual plant for sure. Well captured from this POV. Clear with good colours. Murray.
