Name That Plant

Aaaggghhh.... Frustration! Having a lazy day off work and binge-watching Chelsea. Just seen the most amazing, unusual plant but the guy spoke so fast and the sub-title didn't catch the name! So if anyone has nothing better to do, could you have a look and tell me what it is? Episode 5, 32 minutes in. Sounds like he says Iris something or other, but doesn't look like any iris I've ever seen. It's fabulous!

    As I'm waiting for someone to come and fix my oven....

    First he mentions  Calanthe  - a type of orchid, then Pleione - also an orchid
    Then he mentions Arisaema
    That's all between 32-33 mins
    Hope that helps

    The Arisaemia was the one with the little white "blob" in the centre of the spathe.
