      Definitely agree. It's much nicer, in my opinion, than other similar Arums as it has such a nice variegation. It tends to get quite rampant if left to its own devices as the seeds heads spread easily (the birds will help :whistle:). Its common name is Lords and ladies and the flowers are short lived but the seed heads look good.

      If you can contain its spread then it is OK. Otherwise I would think twice about it.
