Carlo & Others,
Interesting. I have a large form of Arisaema dracontium (about 5')
that I decided to move to a different location last fall. Remembering
that it always fell over right after seed production I decided to plant
it deeper for a better hold this year. The large tuber was planted at
least 8 inches deep between some established ferns. Well, it is right
back up to the surface like the ones in a more shallow soil. Fell over
the ferns this year.
Though this may be of interest,  Gene
