If the Chinese source of Bulbmeiter's is the same as mine, last year, I got an Amorphophallus sp. as Arisaema austro-yunnanense and a very interesting form of Pinellia ternata - fully hardy - with very narrow leaflets, ordered as Arisaema bathycoleum, but the confusion is easy at first glance and when not in flower. Pascal Bruggeman already noted my posting about A. petelotii - received as A. calcareum -, also a very interesting addition but, as he pointed out, not hardy.
As you wrote, nice jewels.
