Welcome to the group! Believe me when I say you are not the only one
that has been bitten by the lure of collecting and growing the
various aroids.

I will pass along a technique for getting Ringens to set seed passed
onto me from Petra Schmidt. Cut the spathe off! I know the spadix
does look a little odd just sitting there (naked and ready for the
deed), but it should work. You can enjoy the bloom for the first day
and take all the pictures you want and then just trim it away. I have
been using this technique on all of the arisaema that have tight
openings to the flowers and so far so good.

Hope this helps.
