Pamianthe pseudostem

Nhu makes reference to a "pseudostem" regarding the flowers of Pamianthe
but the concept of a pseudostem is associated with foliage, not flowering
structures. Examples are found in Pamianthe (leafy shoots) as well
as Worsleya, Scadoxus, Musa, etc. The main flowering axis is a peducle to
which the flowers are joined by a pedicel (or they are sessile).
