As you say yourself, there are many types of rust so the treatment of all=
the different forms can not be uniform like you suggest. This particular
type of rust seems restricted to Arisaema and does occur in wild populati=ons
of triphyllum so the influence of cultivation can be neglected. As Ray al=ready
mentioned, Arisaema rust spreads easily and the only option is to destroy=
the infected plants. Destroying an entire collection seems somewhat over
the top  because not all species are equally vulnerable (section Pedatise=cta
seems most vulnerable) but of the many pests and diseases that can affect=
Arisaema, viruses and Arisaema rust are the ones that can not be treated.=
Destroying infected plants when the first signs of one of these 2 show is=
the only option unfortunately.
