Diploid Arisaema triphyllum

I think the Gusman & Gusman book lists the chromosome counts for most of
the species in a table. A. triphyllum triphyllum is tetraploid, while A.
triphyllum stewardsonii is diploid. As I recall, A. amurense is also
tet. I've ordered a few stewardsonii from Don Hackenberry.
I suppose I ought to plant the Calla palustris in a tub of some kind. I
have a lightly shaded wet bed that is irrigated every other day in summer,
where I want to plant the A. stewardsonii. I could bury a plastic tub in
the same area. What does everyone think about growing Calla palustris
here? this is probably a bit south of its natural range.
The giant triphyllum did not set seed this year. I got mine from Gene
Bush, but I don't know where Gene got his. They also don't seem to have
made any pups yet, but I'll keep watching. I might have to dig one up and
wound the tuber/rhizome to get a pup. They are just now starting to go
dormant. My local native triphyllum triphyllum went dormant weeks ago.
