According to Murato, it is possible to have "a plant with one (or two) foliage leaves and four (or five) infructescences together on one tuber (Fig. 10). This habit appears similar to that of Typhonium larsenii (Fig. 9). Typhonium larsenii was observed to have a 'diphyllous sympodial pattern' (Ray, 1987) of shoot growth and successively extended diphyllous shoots under favorable conditions."

This page demonstrates two ways of linking small images to larger images. Both links are created by clicking the image (while in Edit mode) and using the "Add link" icon.
The first thumbnail links back to the page where the image originally came from, in this case wikimediacommons.
The second thumbnail links to the large image itself. First, make a thumbnail by uploading your picture to picnik.com. Then, use the "Pages and Files" link in the wiki to upload your large image into the wiki's list of files. Drag/drop the thumbnail onto the page, click it once to select it, click the "Add link" button and choose the large file image.

...and most important of all: provide a proper citation for those images!

I found some more good images of the Araceae family at the Aroid Societh website. Here's the link: http://www.aroid.org/gallery/schott/

The information about Typhonium larsenii could have been explained more fully. For example, what is a "diphyllous sympodial pattern?" It was helpful that you provided a link to the journal article from which this information came, but a bit more explanation from you would have made your wiki page more valuable to the botany student.
