Peace Lilly or Closet Plant

I had always thought the basic flower of this Lilly was the white leaf and what was inside...turns out the flower is hundreds of tiny blooms (maybe not hundreds) on the stem or stylix (spelling). It had just rained and this made for an interesting shot.

>>32667 Thanks, Vis. Did you zoom in and see the perfect hexagons at the base of each little flower bud?

>>32672 Amazing stuff on that site. Playing around with the zoom and moving around on the mountain shows there's a lot more to see than just the basic first picture that pops up.

If you enlarge the picture you'll see each bloom sprouts from a perfectly formed six-sided base!

Beautiful!
I know on some plants that what appears to be the flower, or it's petals, is actually a leaf.
