"Here in Costa Rica, the flowers are a 'favourite delicacy' twice a year. The host plant only flowers once, usually when it has reached 15' tall! If the flower is not removed, it will eventually 5-6 new plants, surrounding the flower stalk. So it is hard to get a close photo! Sadly , most here cut the tree down to reach the flower, but in a few weeks 4-5 new shoots appear, from the remaining trunk . It will continue to grow up to 50 ' tall."
