Curious as to how it got the name "voodoo" Lilly .

You are right Gary, A. albus seems to be the appropriate match, in having narrower and more upright leaves (as in the pic) than the other species.
Happy I could help. :):)

Thanks Rahul. I think you got us in the correct genus. We are looking at Amorphophallus albus pictures right now and are thinking that might be it. Dwarf Voodoo lily. Thanks so much

It looks really similar to elephant foot yam (Amorphophallus paeoniifolius). :)
