Aglaonema commutatum

Schott 1856

It reaches about 50 cm of height, leaf blades are 15 cm long.
The pattern is in two shades of green, only on the upper side.

It blooms and fruits every year, it produces self-pollinated viable seeds.
Ripening of the infructescence. Set the cursor on the photos, you'll see the date of each one.
Five months from the blooming the fruits ripened.
But not all. Here's an open fruit that didn't.
Each fruit contains only one seed.
