I can comment on the depth of arisaema that we found in China.
While many that we found were quite deep, it appeared that this was due to
sedimentation, and not to the arisaema pulling itself deeper.  In fact the
A. franchetianum that we found on a dry dusty bank were literally almost on
top of the ground.  I'll be off to S. Korea in 3 weeks to find more arisaema
in the wild...I'll let you know what I observe there.
