The present communication describes the non-inheritance of isomerism in prefoliation and contortion of spathes in cocoyams. Importance of isomerism from the point of taxonomy and agronomy has been discussed. It is expected that a study on the orientation of leaf promordia at shoot apex and their spiral descendance would help in unravelling the hidden laws in shoot morphogenesis of cocoyams.
