Hi Marilyn,
I've been growing Arisaemas with artificial chilling on approximately 8
month cycles for about 2 years now, = 3 seasons. In the winter months they
bloom happily on sunny windowsills and within a few months, after severe
drying, are back in the fridge come frost or heat wave outdoors. Its the
only way I trust some of the moisture sensitive (and very valuable, to me
at least, or nuts in general) Chinese species, and also how I get diverse
species to bloom simultaneously  for cross-pollination purposes.

Hi Marilyn,

Greetings from the  other end of the country. Our climate is  very much
different to yours but I would be happy to send you seed of  several
varieties which  I have now, or some tubers to try in a month or two when
they  go dormant.
