Not a good suggestion.  I would be happy to know how you have managed to
grow yours so successfully, but not at the expense of your beautiful

As far as yours being female for so long, and the fact that Mr. Yamamoto
mentioned that in the wild they tend to grow larger as female, I was
wondering if this is why, at least with your one very large female, it
grows so big (it stays female).

You mentioned that you pull the seed heads before they ripen.  Do you
know if this practice deters Arisaema from reverting back to male after
producing seed?
