The seedhead on one of my Arisaema franchetianums finally started to show
some red color this week, so I harvested it yesterday. I had moved it into
the cool greenhouse about a month ago before we got sub-freezing
Upon cleaning the seeds, I found that virtually every one had gerninated.
No, there weren't any long roots sticking out, but there was a short root
curled up inside the seed coat. At first I was worried that they had rotted
since they looked mis-shapen, but it was just the plant growing inside.
My question is should I plant them immediately, or try to send them into
the seed exchange? I remember that Guy Gusman sent in some last year that
had sprouted by the time we received them, but I think mine might be
farther along. Any ideas?
What's the latest on the strike, Craig? And hang in there, MJ, your prize
is going in the mail tomorrow.
