>....Does Pinellia tripartita 'Atropurpurea' throw true from seed?...

It's always come true in the garden here, Paul.  Sometimes
how "true" seed, including aroid seed, will be is a function of what
is available to cross with it when it flowers.   Could be there is
nothing here compatible at the time of bloom.  Flowering occurs over
a long period starting in early July and continuing (on different
plants) into early October, overlapping in time (but maybe not on any
given day) with both P. pedatisecta and P. cordata 'Yamazaki'.
