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.
