In my old age, I think I was getting some terms mixed up in my head.
The way we use "inflorescence" on the message board is actually correct.
What I was mistakenly associating with that word would be more properly assigned to the words "infructescence" (similar to, but not the same as inflorescence) and/or syconium.
So, there you have it!
