Please note: My comments on the emergence of arisaemas in spring in my
garden in Northern Virginia refers to plants grown out of doors without
any extra protection but the natural fall of leaves in the autumn.
Anything that can be grown in a pot can be manipulated in many ways.
and their growth is a completely different story.
At the moment only two species have yet to emerge, Arisaema
consanguineum and A. tortuosum.
