Arisaema flavum multiplying like crazy....

Interesting observation.........

I wonder if in a pot it's roots are restricted and therefore it feels
threatened, so it offsets to try to make sure that some part of it survives
to grow again.  If it has a full root run it doesn't feel that need?

How does this phenomenon affect flowering though?  Do they flower better
from the one if it doesn't offset?  Does the one in the ground get bigger
instead of offsetting?

Sorry about all the questions..... but they're a great way to learn <grin>.

Cheers (and Thanks)
