Hi all,

I didn't see anything promising in the archives, so I'll ask here:

How well do Zantedeschia seeds retain viability on storage at room
temperature?  In the fridge?

Do they germinate well when treated like Arisaema seeds?  Do they require
day/night temperature differences to germinate, like seeds of many other
South African geophytes?

I have inquiries out to South Africa for seeds of Zantedeschia aethiopica
from plants from colonies growing in colder parts of it natural
range.  I've contacted Silverhill Seeds and The Croft Nursery.  No defini=te
responses have come back yet.    Does anyone know of possible sources for
such stock?  I think Z. aethiopica should range into the mountains, but I
don't know how high up it grows.

Archive Searching vs. Active Questioning

In plant lists I've belonged to for a long time, I've seen that revisitin=g
old questions often leads to new, different, and better information than
what is stored in the archives.  I would encourage new members to take
advantage of the simplified web searching of Arisaema-L archives at

but also don't be shy about asking questions in the list.  The only dumb
question is the un-asked question.
