Arisaema flavum is a fascinating species of flowering plant commonly known as the yellow cobra lily or golden jack-in-the-pulpit. This perennial herbaceous plant belongs to the Araceae family and is native to regions including the Himalayas, Bhutan, Nepal, and parts of India.

As with other members of the genus Arisaema, flavum possesses a unique inflorescence structure. The flower emerges from the ground with a single leaf, which typically has three leaflets. The flower itself consists of a spadix, which is a spike covered with tiny flowers, surrounded by a modified leaf called a spathe. In the case of Arisaema flavum, the spathe is usually a striking yellow color, resembling the hood of a cobra, hence the common name.

This plant prefers growing in shaded areas with moist, well-drained soil, often in woodland environments. It is a popular choice for gardeners interested in unusual and exotic plants due to its distinctive appearance.
