Arisaema nepenthoides came up for me about the same time as triphyllum, a=lthough it tries earlier sometimes. I have 2 new tubers this year. Ones f=rom years ago were in a bad location - too much winter wet - and got some=kind of leaf fungus or virus - purple streaks in the leaves- every year =as they diminished in size.

I now have one in damp sphagnum in the refridgerator, with no sign of awa=kening yet, and one planted in the garden on its side in a raised, well d=raining bed.

No outdoor Arisaemas up here yet. Only a few crocuses and the Red Maple h=ave shown their blooms, and the Helleborus hybridus types are late this y=ear and just starting to put out buds.
