About offsets with Chen Yi's arisaemas:


A-08 is rhizomatous and is identical, as you noticed, with CT 369. This
plant has recently be described, by Eric Gouda and I, as A. ciliatum var.
liubaense in Blumea 44: 37-39 (1999).

A-09 (= A. franchetianum): I have the same experience with offsets: I never
separate them from the mother-tuber. I prefer to wait till they detach
themselves. Often roots appear on the tuberlets before they become

A-06 (= A. elephas) and A-07 are not stoloniferous: they have very
prominent tuberlets at the side of the mother-tuber. Nevertheless they are
directly attached to the mother-plant and are not borne at the extremity of
a stolon.

A last remark: A-07 is A. lobatum, quite different from A. pangii, which is
close to A. nepenthoides.
