Old leaf sheaths up to 100 mm long and 5 mm diameter widening to 18 mm at ground level, light brown, membranous. Leaf solitary, sub-erect or spreading horizontally; contemporary leaf sheath exserted up to 40 mm, up to 4 mm diameter, maroon red, glabrous or covered with curly, white hairs; lamina narrowly to broadly ovate-cordate, acute, up to 20 mm long and 15 mm wide, apex often recurved, abaxial surface reddish-green, sparsely hairy, adaxial surface dark green, producing few to numerous branched enations, more or less terete, up to 45 mm long and 3 mm wide, dark green, fleshy, sparsely to densely covered with curly white hairs. Peduncular bract barely exserted or up to 5 mm, upper 3 mm non-sheathing, ovate, apex acute, retrorse, green with red streaking, glabrous; margin red. Peduncle 35-60 mm long, 1.0-1.5 mm diameter, glaucous with red striations, glabrous. Raceme cylindrical with a pointed apex, up to 70 mm long, 25 mm wide at the base, with up to 21 flowers. Bracts triangular, sometimes somewhat cymbiform or spurred, 1.0-1.5 mm long with acuminate apex, membranous, transparent with a reddish-brown midnerve. Pedicels erecto-patent, arcuate, lower up to 10 mm long, upper slightly shorter. Flowers triangular, spreading, up to 14 mm diameter. Tepals dimorphic, connate for 1.5 mm at the base, white with a dark green midnerve overlaid with faint red striations; outer tepals spreading with a recurved sometimes slightly twisted apex, narrowly elliptic to linear, attenuate, 7-8 mm long and 2 mm wide, inner suberect, spathulate with a crisped, connivent apex, 6-7 mm long and 2 mm wide. Filaments forming a ring round the ovary with anthers touching, subequal, outer adnate about 1 mm up the tepals, triangular, 2 mm long and 1.0-1.3 mm wide at the base, white with purple blotches; inner adnate nearly 2 mm up the tepals, 1.8 mm long and 1 mm wide at the base, white.
