I assumed that we could not grow Arisaema griffithii after killing
dozens of them over a period of years.  Not being one to easily admit
defeat, we kept trying and now have A. griffithii growing and flowering
for 2 straight years.  In my experience, it needs exceptionally good
drainage.  We also used the technique that we use for cyclamen and plant
it a the base of a tree or conifer where it will get little water in the
winter months.  I hope this helps.
