Broken arisaema

A trick that I use to repair arisaemas or other plants that get the stem
partially broken is to use good old duct tape wrapped around the bent area as
a splint. You can even take a toothpick or a twig and incorporate it into the
splinting process if necessary.

It really works well, and trilliums treated this way will often go ahead with
their full growth period and set seed.
