Well, I envy you for having arisaemas in bloom to look at. I'm afraid we are
hopelessly smitten also, but they do not really sell very well for us here
at the nursery, sadly, and we are not really interested in going into
mail-order. We raise hundreds (perhaps thousands) a year and usually sit on
them until they bloom, when we end up wholesaling them to larger retail

I recently did a little piece on arisaemas for the Pacific Bulb Society list
and it was pretty much of a flop. There wasn't much discussion at all. I
guess the cross-over is not that great between the true bulb people and the
"other geophyte" people.

At least the nice thing about sikokianum seedlings is that (in our
experience) they bloom in the third year, sometimes even in the second year
from germination.

I was describing my garden last year and tallking about the Narcissus
enmasse (i.e lots of them) and had the same sort of question.  Thanks for
at least letting me know you were joking...... the other one I wasn't sure
about and explained to be on the safe side <grin>

It really is amazing how many of th seedling Arisaemas are shooting now,
well before the adult plants.  Particularly pleasing is a good pot of
Arisaema sikokianum seedlings..... usually the second season I find that
about half of them are gone, but this lot must have had just about every
single one of them survive.  Here's hoping I get some flowers in a few

Still drooling over my Arisaema ringens flowering...... hopelessly
addicted!!!!! <big grin>
