It is characteristic of Arisaema that they will revert to male state when
stressed in the previous
season. It is also characteristic for them to remain dormant for an
entire season following severe stress.
Sounds like that's what happened to yours. I've never seen A. triphyllum
wilt to the ground. You
must have had some drought.
Don't expect A. candidissimum unto; late July or August. A. tortuosum is
also late. One of my
plants comes up in mid August every year. The others are usually up by
the end of May.
Hard to comment on germination success since you don't give particulars.
I have found
A. triphyllum germinates as easily as the Asian species. The last time I
tried it there was
100% germination in 24 days (root radicle).
