Schismatoglottis wallichii 'Green & Gold'

Hook. f. 1894 / hort?

This species is native to Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo.
There are a few leaf pattern variants. This one is named 'Green & Gold', but I don't know f it is a cultivar or a natural variety.

An inflorescence before detaching the upper part of the spathe.
Inflorescences at the male anthesis. They produce a lot of pollen.
"Spadix cylindric with a distinct sterile zone between the male and female zones and the appendix absent or extremely reduced
(a few terminal staminodes)" - A. Hay and Yuzammi "Schismatoglottideae (Araceae) in Malesia I - Schismatoglottis"
