>Arisaema "flower" without the plural, .......

Not so.  Arisaema inflorescences have many flowers. It's just that they're
inside the spathe and very small.

>Out of interest how big should a flower [inflorescence] of this be?

My mature ones get about 6 inches (150mm) across the curl. The
leaves are usually 2 feet (600mm) across, but the plant is rather short.
Many A. ringens will get over 3 feet (900mm) tall and these are only about
2 1/2 feet (750mm) tall.

Happy to see you so happy, Paul. It is wonderful when your first A. ringens
