Most of my jacks and amorphs are in the ground and they come up a very diÿerent times. A. ringens is always early and in full reglia now but almo=st going over. A. candidissimum is just peeking through the soil. A. saxi=tale, robustum, angustatum in full bloom, A. sikokanum gone over, and all=the green triphyllums are setting seed, but the purple ones are in bloom=. Here a colony of purple triphyllums is always about 2-3 weeks behind th=e small and giant green ones. I do not know why. All collected in about t=he same area. I think in your case, you bring the jacks out all together =into the spring warmth and they all start shooting up at the same time, t=riggered by watering and warmth, maybe. Btw, I have some potted A. konjac=and they need repotting every year, getting larger all the time, some 6-=7 feet tall. A pain because the winds turn over the pots. You almost have=to stake them. I like them better in the ground but they need sheltered =area so the winds don't brake the pulpy stems. I use Osmocote on everythi=ng, one dose in late April and that is it.

It's interesting that all the Arisaema emerge at the same time!! I have
a pot with several species that is brought in over the winter, and the
A. triphyllum is, of course, all over the back garden. All the pips are
up and growing at the same rate!
My question is about fertilizer. The A. triphylluum outside just do
their thing... big corms from small with absolutely no attention. But
the corm A. konjac, inside, has reduced in size.
Should I take special measures to help the corms in the pot? Fertilizer
or soil composition????
