Remusatia vivipara

Winter dormant. Inflorescence appears in early spring before the leaves from a corm that can grow to a substantial size. The yellow spathe blade reflexes after about 48 hours of opening. Easily sets seed. Leaves are broad and when young, the veins on the leaf surface are prominently marked in a lighter coloured area. When leaves are fully developed and flowering is over, the corm produces erect and somewhat stout stolons which grow through the summer and eventually produces hundreds of tiny bulbils which are dispersed in late winter.

Habitat: Northwest India to Bhutan through the Himalayan mountains. Now widely distributed in many parts of the word

Ethnobotany: Not known

 developing stolons and fruit
