    Are the front of the leaves a solid color, or do they have some pattern to them?

    Karen, voodoo lily and devil's tongue are two common names for the same plant: Amorphophallus konjac.

    walter and douglas, thank u both for the information.i did research w/your imput and it is voodoo lily, devils tongue, and has a few other nick names too. so now i wondered what my "voodoo lily" really was cause it is wild looking, but nothing like the plant we were talking about in my picture. well it is a arum - corntum. it has a spotted long leaf and a spike coms up from the inside of that. now i have the correct name for both,thanks.

    Glad you've sorted them out, Karen. You definitely cultivate some unusual plants! You must bring them indoors for the winter in Pennsylvania.
