No inflorescences. Tree has produced cloves twice in the past decade or so. May be a climate issue. Nothing to ID by except the clove smell to the leaves.

This is a captive/cultivated Spathoglottis that was originally retrieved from a swampy area in Palikir to the north of the college campus. I had thought this might be Spathoglottis plicata, but my more recent awareness of diversity in the genus has meant that I am no longer certain.
