Hello again to all,

I was out looking at all my collections of Arisaema
triphyllum and noticed that one of them has its flower
stem seperate from the leaf, so I went and looked at
all the others to make sure that this may be normal,
but this one is the only one. Not that it matters but
it is different. It is also the form I found last year
with silver veins.

And on the quinatum, I have also found triphyllum
with the "thumbs" on the leaves, but they are not
there every year. the quinatum alwaus have had five
leaflets when mature. If I do get a decent seed set on
the 'quinatum' I would be glad to share/trade.
