Random plant event: Homalomena 'Perma Press' flowers

Not the most amazing flower. Looks a lot, actually, like all the other aroid flowers (Alocasia, Philodendron, Dieffenbachia, etc.). But it's different enough.

The plant itself is huge (potentially), and looks like this:

It's tempting, except for the part where I have no room for such a monster, and very little confidence in my ability to grow Homalomenas in general. (Though 'Emerald Gem' and I are getting along somewhat better now. So it's not hopeless.) I'll be slightly jealous of whichever customer gets it.

Not come across this before. Bit big but I am a huge fan of Aroids. Thanks.
