Hi Leo, Your experience (wherever you are)-- matches mine in Illinois . Up
right now are a number of different triphyllums, dracontium, sikokianum, and
Sikotak (sikokianum x takedae... an "Eco-" hybrid). I also have a
griffithii up (horticulturally poor quality in that the spathe parts are
narrow, and the life of the inflorescence was only about 5 days. Maybe too
dry...but conforming to the criteria in Gusman) although the inflorescence
has gone limp and away , and, 2 thunbergii v. urashima. Waiting for
candidissimum and the others. Pinellias just coming up this week.
