Lyn and Paul,


We really don't care why the plant has become confused and started to
grow off season.
It still needs to be brought back into the proper seasonal rotation.

I'd be surprised if a local Nursery in Victoria is growing A.
consanguineum as a crop. They
undoubtedly imported the plant. And, most likely, from a northern
hemisphere source.
The horrendous quarantine costs are not so horrendous if you divide by
several hundred
by importing large lots.

But it matters not. It still needs to have it's clock reset.

The next thing to do is to verify that it really is A. consanguineum.
Some import sources
are very loose about proper identification. The local nurseries usually
just go by
what they're told. So, key it out using Aroid029, KEY, Arisaema of India
& Burma, by Chatterjee.
